Understand effective pre-judgment and post-judgment remedies to collect a debt in California.
Many attorneys and people responsible for collecting debt understand that a lawsuit might be required to obtain a judgment for a debt owed. However, most people, including attorneys, do not know how to enforce a judgment when the debtor refuses to pay. Many assume a debt will be paid when a judgment is obtained; unfortunately, that is not the case. Judgment enforcement actions are often required before a judgment debtor will attempt to satisfy a judgment, but few attorneys know how to do anything other than the basic judgment enforcement remedies of conducting bank levies and judgment debtor examinations. This leaves many clients upset and judgments unsatisfied. This presentation will help persons responsible for debt collection understand effective pre- and post-judgment remedies to collect a debt, discuss how to attempt a debt before filing a lawsuit, and post-judgment remedies in California, including creating liens, conducting effective post-judgment discovery, and satisfying the judgment.
