What if the debtor dies?

August 13, 2023


Q: What if my debtor dies while a judgment enforcer is enforcing my judgment?

A: This is not good for anyone. If the debtor dies – the judgment enforcer (JE) lets you know. If you learn of this, let the JE know.

JEs usually get notice from the lawyer handling the probate or estate. JEs attempt to collect from the estate of the debtor – but that does not always result in money being collected. Sometimes a compromise settlement is reached. If the debtor’s estate has no assets, usually nothing can be done.
