How can I collect my money?

There are several ways you can collect your money such as:

  • If the other party (defendant) has the money and is present at the trial, s/he can pay you right then.
  • If s/he does not have the money at that time and you both agree at the trail, the judge can set up a payment schedule. If the defendant is not present at the trial, the court will send a copy of the small claims judgment to the defendant. The judgment will order the defendant to pay you in full within 21 days.
  • If the defendant doesn't pay the judgment as ordered, you will have to collect your money through a request and order to seize property or a garnishment.
