Time it takes to enforce a Judgment?

August 13, 2023


Q: How long will it take to recover my judgment?

A: That depends almost 100% on the judgment debtor. No matter how good a Judgment Enforcer/contingency collection lawyer/collection agency (JE) is – a broke or scoundrel debtor may be judgment-proof for now. And because judgment enforcers follow all laws, there are many legally-required delays (and expenses).

The quickest we have seen a judgment recovered is 5 days, the average time is about 16 months. The longest time has been about 27 years (so far), and some will take longer than that – and some will never be recovered. JEs only get paid for success – so you know JEs do their best to enforce judgments quick – and JEs keep tracking the debtor – no matter how long it takes.
