Florida Judgment Enforcement Help
Russell Law and Patrick Russell, Esq. , a Miami Debt Collection lawyer, are available to assist you with the collection of your Florida judgment. A money judgment is a legal right to money damages. The judgment will not however on its own force the debtor to pay you. Chances are that a judgment will do nothing for you unless you take direct action to enforce payment. Many options may be available to you including foreclosure, garnishment and levy. The available options vary depending on the facts of your unique case.

To begin this process, Russell Law and Patrick Russell, Esq., a Miami Debt Collection lawyer can take steps to make sure that your judgment is recorded and that a judgment lien has been filed on your behalf. Both steps are necessary to protect your lien rights. Thereafter, we can assist you with investigating the assets and income of the judgment debtor. This investigation is a two step process. First private investigators are used to locate assets and income of the debtor. At the same time, Russell Law will through the Court submit formal questions and document requests to the debtor to determine the debtor’s property and income. If needed, a deposition can also be scheduled for the debtor to appear in our office to answer questions under oath. These legal proceedings are known as post-judgment discovery. Provided that the debtor agrees to pay, we can draft a payment plan for the debtor to sign that outlines the terms of payment. After payment is received, this office can prepare a satisfaction of judgment for the case.
