Enforcing A Judgment Or Arbitration Award
Obtaining a judgment in your favor does not necessarily amount to a victory. A judgment is worthless if left unenforced. The first step — obtaining a favorable decision — is perhaps overshadowed by the equally important necessity of enforcing the judgment.
How To Collect On A Judgment
The enforcement process may involve several steps. For example, to enforce an out-of-state or foreign (international) judgment, you must first domesticate the judgment in Florida courts. Likewise, enforcing an arbitration award requires court confirmation. You must also adhere to detailed legal notice requirements and other procedural hurdles to collect on the judgment.
For many creditors, this process can be just as burdensome as the underlying lawsuit.
At The Levey Law Firm, we strive to make it easy. The firm is a strong and reputable legal ally for creditors seeking to collect on judgments in Florida. Based in Miami, we partner with creditors and legal counsel around the world to provide efficient collection services.
