How Are Money Judgments Enforced?

"Voluntary" Compliance ­ Very often a judgment debtor will pay the money owed to a judgment creditor and thus satisfy the money judgment. If the judgment debtor does not pay, the judgment creditor should contact him/her and ask for payment. Sometimes a simple telephone call or a short letter yields results; sometimes a lien or execution is required.
