Obtaining a judgment against a defendant is not the same thing as collecting that judgment and often collecting a final judgment is the real battle in a case. You will often hear attorneys tell their clients that winning a lawsuit can be the easy part and collecting the judgment can be what takes time and considerable effort. When a judgment is obtained at the conclusion of a lawsuit, very rarely will a defendant write a check for the amount owed. Collection of the judgment may also be delayed if a defendant chooses to appeal to a higher court. If the defendant does not voluntarily pay a judgment, there are, however, ways to attempt to collect a judgment after it becomes final.
