If I win, will I be able to collect from the person/business?

If you obtain a judgment in your favour, you may not be able to collect right away. You may have to enforce the judgment. In order for you to collect, the person/business must have one of the following:

  • Money (bank account)
  • Assets that can be sold (property/land or vehicle, etc.), or
  • A debt owed to them, such a wages, rental income, accounts receivables, etc.

Keep in mind, you may have trouble collecting if the person/business is unemployed, filed for bankruptcy, no income, or owes other debts.
