Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Is the tenant employed anywhere?
Do you know if they have any assets like boats, motorcycles, RVs, etc.?
Ok, if you have a judgment, you can then file a request with the court clerk for a wage assignment order to have the sheriff serve on the person's employer so that they can withhold up to 25% of the person's wages until the debt is paid.
If you knew the person's bank account, you could also get a writ to levy on that from the clerk.
If you don't know what assets the person has and any bank info, you can file a request with the clerk for a "debtor's examination" where you can force the person to return to court and answer questions about their assets. In Illinois, the document which directs the debtor to come back for this examination is called a "Citation To Discover Assets".
So it would appear that your best bet would be to go after a wage garnishment order from the clerk if the person is employed.
