J.Hazelbaker :

Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.

J.Hazelbaker :

There is a specific process you need to follow in order to get the sheriff to seize the property.

J.Hazelbaker :

The first step is sending a 10 day notice to the defendant demanding s/he return the property as ordered by the court.

J.Hazelbaker :

You also need to have your judgment filed with the district court. You can take your judgment to the court administrator and they can help you accomplish this.

J.Hazelbaker :

You need to send your notice via Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested.

J.Hazelbaker :

Once the 10 day period expires, you can request the sheriff seize the property listed in the judgment. They will require proof that you send the 10 day notice.

J.Hazelbaker :
