NORWALK JUDGMENT ENFORCEMENT LAWYER
You’ve won a judgment now what?
For many litigants it comes as a surprise that having a court find a debt valid and grant you a judgment is not the end of the battle to collect money that is due to them. Although Connecticut provides a creditor with many tools to collect on an outstanding debt, it is the creditors duty to enforce the judgment to collect the debt.
Once you’ve received a judgment in Connecticut, depending on the type of judgment, that judgment may be enforced up to twenty years from the date the judgment was entered. Having a check handed over to you for the amount of the judgment is not the only way to collect on an outstanding judgment. A skilled attorney will know that a judgment creditor can enforce on outstanding debt by execution or foreclosure of a real property lien. A judgment creditor will be entitled to collect all permitted statutory costs and fess, interest, costs incurred in obtaining the judgment, and any attorney’s fees.
