What if the person/company does not have a job/revenue now?

We often say that getting your judgment is only half the battle.  Collecting on your judgment can be difficult, especially if the Defendant is currently unemployed and/or does not own any property.  However, your judgment does not expire, but once it is over 6 years old you will require the courts permission to issue a garnishment.  These orders are generally granted, as long as you can show that you continuously attempted to locate the Defendant or their employment/assets on a continuing basis.  You don’t want it to look like you have abandoned the judgment at any time.
