Research shows that almost 80% of judicial money judgments nationwide remain uncollected. That statistic is pretty much the same for Texas money judgments.Contrary to popular opinion, the court that awarded you a money judgment does not help you collect it. The collection process is left totally to you. If you had an attorney help you get your judgment, I'm sure you were surprised to learn that your attorney actually knows very little about how to collect your judgment. It's just not something they teach in law school. And, it's just not something most attorneys want to spend their time doing.So, as a practical matter, getting your money judgment in Texas is the easy part. Collecting it is the hard part ... unless you know what you're doing.How to Collect Your Own Judgment in Texas teaches you everything you need to know to collect your own money judgment in Texas. The book outlines the 7 basic steps you need to follow and gives you all the forms you need to successfully collect your Texas judgment without difficult to understand legal jargon. Using these 7 steps, you'll learn how to find your judgment debtor, seize your judgment debtor's bank accounts, seize your judgment debtor's real estate to pay your judgment, force your judgment debtor to discuss payment options with you and get a complete itemized list of your judgment debtor's assets. And, you get all of this information in plain english.
