Most Judgments Never Enforced

August 12, 2023


Why are 90% of judgments not enforced?

Every judgment situation is different, but some reasons include:  Many judgment debtors no longer have enough available assets to pay the judgment, and “the system” seems to let people hide money – and defraud others. (When a qualified judgment enforcer, collections agency, or collections lawyer is on the job – that 90% number goes down – but some judgments cannot be enforced.)

Free advice and a joke:   Best to accept what is – worrying or bad feelings never helps. If you can affect outcomes for the positive – take action. If you cannot, try to be happy and hope for the best.

The Zen master steps up to the hot dog cart and says: “Make me one with everything” and pays with a $20 bill. The hot dog vendor puts the bill in the cash drawer and closes it. “Where’s my change?” asks the Zen master. The hot dog vendor responds: “Change must come from within.”

Where did that 90% number come from? We do not know, but we guess it’s more like 95%.
