How do I collect a court ordered judgement?
- The first step is to get a Court order requiring the Defendant to file a Fact Information Sheet with the Court listing all of the assets, income, and expenses. That should give you a better idea of what your options are and what type of property the Defendant has. There are firms that exclusively collect on judgments and small firms like mine that provide collection services along with their other areas of practice.

You can still seek the divorce or a final hearing even if the other party objects.
