Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
That is standard language in a judgment that gives the plaintiff (or other winning party) the right to use the judgment to collect the amount defendant was ordered to pay.
This can be done through tools such as wage garnishment, bank levy, and liening property.
In addition, the language gives the plaintiff the right to add the costs of doing those things to the total amount due. And, finally, to charge the defendant 5% interest on the total due until judgment is fully paid off.
