Good afternoon. As the prevailing party, you will want to returns to court with a motion to execute judgment and ask to examine the defendant’s financial and personal information to ascertain their employer and the location of any property or bank accounts. The losing party will be forced to appear and testify under oath. Once you obtain that information in the court, you ask the court to issue an order of garnishment/seizure in order to satisfy the judgment. The court will then issue the order and the clerk will have the forms to serve on the banks or the employer to attach the losing party's bank accounts and garnish his/her wages.
