Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
There is a specific process you need to follow in order to get the sheriff to seize the property.
The first step is sending a 10 day notice to the defendant demanding s/he return the property as ordered by the court.
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.
You need to send your notice via Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested.
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.
For details, see page 9 of the publication at the following web address:
