Must I Pay For The Expenses Incurred In Enforcing My Judgment?

No. A collection service advances the cost of all expenses incurred in collection. The expenses are then deducted from the judgment settlement before it is divided. Finally, they petition the court to have the amount of your judgment increased by the amount of the expenses, so your debtor is ultimately forced to pay them.
