Q: I had to sue another party. I have a small claims court judgment. Now what?
A: The law requires that the defendant submit a statement of income and assets to you. However, this rarely happens. Usually, you will have to set a debtors examination and require him or her to bring documents to court. Failure of a debtor to do this usually results in the court issuing a bench warrant for the debtor.
Of course, this is why attorneys prefer cases where there is insurance. It makes collecting a judgment a lot easier.
