What Are Post-Judgment Remedies?

Post-judgment remedies are legal mechanisms that allow prevailing parties to enforce judgments obtained in court. When one wins a lawsuit and receives a judgment in their favor, this doesn’t necessarily guarantee payment or compliance from the opposing party. Post-judgment remedies provide actionable methods for the winning party to collect what they are owed – and otherwise, enforce the court’s decision.

Some of the most common post-judgment remedies include:

  • Wage Garnishment: This may involve having a portion of wages withheld from the losing party’s paycheck.
  • Bank Account Levy: This enables the winning party to freeze and seize funds from the losing party’s bank account.
  • Lien: A judgment lien may be placed on the losing party’s property, preventing them from selling or transferring ownership of the property until the judgment is satisfied.
  • Execution: This occurs when the losing party’s personal property or real estate is seized or sold in order to satisfy the judgment.
  • Contempt Of Court: If the losing party does not comply with the court’s decision, they will be held in contempt. This can result in fines and even imprisonment until they agree to comply.

While these are common examples of post-judgment remedies, each case will differ depending on the specific circumstances. Your post-judgment lawyer will be instrumental in helping you determine the best course of action to take in order to achieve your unique legal goals.
