Prejudgment Writ of Attachment: Protecting Your Ability to Get Paid

It's not uncommon for a business to provide goods or services to a customer and not be paid for those goods / services. Indeed, there are some people who just don't think that they should have to pay. Is your only option getting a judgment? Is there another option that protects your ability to get paid the money that you're owed pending judgment?

A Judgment Doesn't Guarantee You'll Get Paid

A judgment against a debtor does not guarantee payment. We are certainly not suggesting that you shouldn't sue and seek a judgment against the debtor. It is important to know the truth: a judgment against a debtor doesn't force the debtor to pay you. It means the court agrees that the debtor owes you money. The judgment may come up on the debtor's credit report or background check and getting a judgment can make it harder for the debtor to take advantage of another business.

Opportunity debtors will do whatever is necessary to not pay their debts. For example, when they find out they're going to be sued or that they're being sued, they move all of their assets and property into the name of another person. An aggressive commercial collections attorney knows how to follow the money trail.

Prejudgment Writ of Attachment Can Help You Get Paid

Prejudgment writ of attachments are usually available only in civil lawsuits where money is being sought. There must be some sort of contract (either expressed or implied) and the cost of what's owed (including fees) must total at least $500. As a creditor, you need a commercial collections lawyer to help you prove that you have the right to a prejudgment writ of attachment so that you can get the money that's owed to you.
