Objective information on small claims judgement collection

About CollectYourJudgment.org

Collect Your Judgment was founded to fill the gap for those who have been awarded a small claims judgment and are now in the midst of the frustrating process of collecting that judgment.

We’re here to help you get what is rightfully yours

We’re here to help you get what is rightfully yours and to assist in making that process a little less painful for both sides. Many have fallen on hard times, and while the judge has determined that the opposing party owes you money, you do not want to turn the collection into a practice of harassment, intimidation, and humiliation — practices that can result in a lawsuit against you.

There are legal methods available to collect the debts and Collect Your Judgment was founded to make those methods available to you, to help you understand how to use them, and to ensure your questions and concerns are addressed in a timely manner. To this end we offer an online contact form, email information, and a free help line number for your questions and requests for help.

Tip of the Week

September 27, 2010

If you have been awarded a judgment, waited the 30 days required, sent a demand letter giving the debtor a time limit for paying his/her debt; what should you do if you still have no money? You know that the court can do little, but before you take steps to garnish wages or bank accounts, consider suggesting negotiation or mediation if the debtor gives any impression that they want to settle the matter.
