Requesting Payment From the Debtor After You Receive a Judgment

You must take steps to ensure your rightful payments.

You will receive the arbitrator's decision-the judgment, by mail in three to ten days.

Having received your judgment, you should without further delay send the debtor a letter referring to the judgment as given in your favor and request that the debtor pay you now. This is a mandatory step and sets the stage for all further action.

Observation It is a commonly held misconception by the general public that once you have obtained a judgment that awards you the amount you claimed for, the debtor must pay you or else. Not so! There is no penalty for not paying. That is why the reader must familiarize himself with the "tools" for compelling the unwilling debtor to pay the judgment.
