My question was: "Can I claim costs/file cost memo (form MC-012) after I file a writ of execution which does not yet have said costs in the writ form (EJ-130)?"
Your answer is: "The costs you can include are costs you actually incurred after the judgment was entered. Your original judgment should have included the costs of filing your suit and if you were awarded attorneys fees, those fees. Unless you have a court order you cannot get attorneys fees. If the costs you are looking to recover are fees associated with filing the judgment, serving the judgment, and things of that nature they are recoverable after the writ of execution is issued."
My question was not about what costs (e.g. attorney fees) I can claim, but, instead, was about when do I have to claim them.
I have incurred post-judgment costs, and will incur more after the writ of execution is (finally) issued. I need the writ before I can move for an order to sell a dwelling (which will be more court costs and attorney fees), and I will likely have a motion to compel and/or contempt (relating to debtor's refusal to comply with court orders re post-judgment discovery), etc.
I want to get my writ BEFORE I file a post-judgment cost memo (form MC-012), and I do not want to waive my current and future costs. So I am trying to find out if I can just get my writ now and claim my costs later. The writ (form EJ-130) that I submitted has a "blank" (no data entered) as line item "12. Costs after judgment".
