COLLECTING ON A JUDGMENT (SMALL CLAIMS and COURT JUDGMENT) go back


(Civil Code §§ 116.810 - 116.880)

Judgement Collection You'll have to collect the judgement yourself if you win in small claims court. If you're the judgment creditor and haven't received payment of the money awarded in the judgement, make sure the other party, the judgment debtor is aware of the judgement, its amount, and where to mail payment. Often, a simple personal note to the judgement debtor requesting payment of the judgement is all that is needed to end a dispute.

The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) maintains the Self-Help Center on its website to assist Californians with court procedures. The AOC does not interpret the law or provide legal advice on individual cases.
