How do I collect on my judgment?

There are several options to collecting on a judgment: 1)You can have an execution issued to attach wages, a cash drawer, a bank account or vehicle; 2) You can obtain an Order for Supplementary Proceedings (where you would be permitted to ask the defendant questions about their assets, e.g., Where do you bank? Where do you work? What`s your social security number? What`s your date of birth?, etc.) You can then use this information to file an execution; 3)You can have an Abstract of Judgment issued and record it at the Washoe County Recorder`s office. The Abstract of Judgment will enable you to collect on the judgment when the defendant sells a piece of real estate since any liens must be satisfied before the defendant can sell the property. (See Small Claims Costs).
