GYl your first step here is to got to your County Clerk and abstract the judgment you got.This clouds title to any real estate they may have.Then your next step is to contact court where judgment was entered and set it for a debtors exam hearing.Here you are able to question them under oath about any assets they own including bank accounts.

Here if you set this for debtor exam and they no show judge issues warrant to pick up the debtor and bring him before the judge.They might spend some time in jail until judge is available.
