I got my Judgment, now what?
There is a misconception that getting a money judgment against someone, means they will pay you. In general this is NOT the case. We, at Perry Law Office, have found that on average it can take up to two (2) years to collect on a judgment depending on the various circumstances and how old the debt is. There are of course those rare circumstances when you get paid immediately upfront. But in most circumstances that is not the case.Getting the money judgment is only the first step.
