Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, I'm Heather an attorney with 15 years experience. I'm happy to assist for informational and educational purposes.
I'm unclear on part of your question, so could you clarify? You stated that the lawsuit was lost, but then you asked if the court could enforce the judgment. How would there be a judgment if the lawsuit was lost? Could you clarify that point? I think I'm missing something.
Thank you for that clarification. I apologize that I wasn't able to understand what you were saying. I think I got it now.
If the judgment comes out of the MO court, in order to enforce the judgment in IL, the judgment will first need to be "registered" in IL. You do that by filing a copy of the judgment with the clerk of the court and getting an IL case number. After you've successfully registered the judgment in IL, you can proceed to issue writs of garnishments to take bank accounts, to garnish wages, or writs to pick up property, etc. Has that helped answer your question? I hope so! Let me know if I've answered your question, or if you have anything else I can assist with.
