How do I collect my judgment from Small Claims Court?
The burden to collect if you win in Small Claims Court is yours, not the court's. You should contact the person, and if he/she still does not pay, you can obtain a court order for the seizure of the defendant's assets or wages. Keep in mind that you will have to pay a collection fee for this service.
