    Unhappy Collecting on a Judgement

    My question involves judgment recovery in the State of:PA
    A civil judgement was given to the person for $4000 but the person has not paid. Judgement was passed on Aug 7, 2008. The person kept promising to pay for one year and then I sent many letters but no response.

    The person does not work but her husband does who has promised to pay but does not.

    Any information to resolve this would be helpful.

    Thank you.

    If she has no job, there are no wages to garnish. If she has a bank account in her name, or jointly with her spouse, you can consider seeking an order of garnishment to try to recover the money from the account. If she has non-exempt property against which you might seek an order of execution, that's another option - but execution tends to be expensive, so you have to be careful that there's enough property you can reach that would pay the cost of that process as well as paying part or all of the judgment. You may be able to find a collection agency that will try to collect the judgment for you, although I would expect them to keep about half of anything they recover as their fee.
