Having an expert like Civil Litigations on your side can make all the difference in the world. Let us consider the three most common ways we can enforce a court order for you in Toronto.
Wage garnishment typically means that we bring the defendant back to court. If the judge finds that the defendant has willfully disobeyed the order, the judge can order that a specific amount of money be withheld from the debtor's paycheck and be paid directly to you, regardless of whether the defendant shows up for court or not.
The defendant will have no choice in the matter. Instead, the employer of the person who is indebted to you will automatically deduct the sum to pay to you. A wage garnishment is often the ideal way to get the money that is owed to you. Of course, this method won't work if the person has no job. In that case, their other methods of recourse.
If you know at which bank the debtor keeps his or her funds, you may pursue a bank levy against their account. Basically, the judge can order that the debtor's bank account be frozen and seized. The judge can then determine whether all of the money in the account or a portion of it will be used to pay you what's owed. First, the court will perform a survey to determine the extent of the debtor's holdings.
As with a bank levy, an asset levy is where a judge seizes the personal property or assets of the defendant to pay the creditor. This can include jewellery, art, automobiles, boats, and even homes and businesses. Unlike a bank levy, asset levies take more time because the judge will need to assess the debtor's property and value it.
