Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello. My name is***** am here to help you with this question. If the court issued a money judgement, then typically, an information subpoena and restraining order are served on various banks so a Marshal can execute on the judgment. I am surprised this has not happened. Also, if someone does not pay on a judgment, you can also file a motion for contempt. Whether or not these entail legal fees is something separate. The only options would be for the executor to file the motion for contempt (or similar motion); or attempt to get the court to issued the subpoena. It's hard to do all this without an attorney as you are aware.
Hello again. Thanks for the additional information. I am sorry to hear this. So many estate proceedings seem endless with loops and turns getting nowhere. I understand your frustration. Believe me. Sometimes having a new attorney (if the current one is exhausted and burnt out on the matter), may have the energy to persistently move forward. If the person is out of state, it would be more difficult to restrain moneys and execute a judgment. I understand you want closure.
