Pursuant to §683.020 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, a judgment creditor has a maximum period of 10 years within which to enforce or collect on his judgment for damages against a judgment debtor. Therefore you have 10 years from the judgment that you received to enforce it to collect the money she was ordered to pay. You can hire a collection company who can pursue wage garnishment or liens against assets, or even a levy of any bank accounts you can find.
