How Will the Court Enforce the Order?
The courts use the executive branch authority to execute their judgments. The court, through its contempt power, might order that the respondent pays a certain amount to the court upfront. If the respondent is gainfully employed, the court will most often ask that a certain amount of money be deducted from each one of their paychecks until they have satisfied their debt. In these cases, the money is garnished from the respondent's employer and paid to the court. Then, the court pays the money to the plaintiff.
You Need to Request the Court to Enforce the Order
Often, without the prevailing party (the plaintiff) asking the court to intercede, a judgment will usually be rendered and the plaintiff has to go about collecting the money on their own. Sometimes, a plaintiff can get a judgment certified and request that the court use its executive authority and send a notice to the sheriff along with a description of where the individual's property is so the sheriff can identify the property and seize it to sell at public auction. This is one method of Toronto judgment services.
Using a Lien or Freezing Accounts
A lien can also be placed on the non-compliant party's property. Putting a lien on a person's property can have all kinds of repercussions for the respondent. If they don't pay with a lien on their house, then the plaintiff can essentially foreclose on the home and have it sold at public auction by the sheriff. The judge can also order that the respondent's bank account be frozen and seized.Toronto Judgment Enforcement Services
