Winning in court does not by itself carry any time limit or compel payment.by the loser. What you have is a judgment or obligation for payment. You should send a demand letter giving the other party 10 days to pay. If the other party fails to pay you will need to start collection procedures which can include garnishment of wages/accounts, attachment of personal property, and liens against real property.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
