AFTER TRIAL 

Collecting Judgment 

 

1. SUPPLEMENTAL ORDER: 

After a judgement is entered you could complete and return a Supplemental Proceedings packet to find the defendant (s) income, property and assets. Complete, return it to the clerk to be issued. The Supplemental Order must be served at least five business days prior to the hearing. 

2. GARNISHMENT:

You many garnish the defendant’s wages, bank accounts, or any money owed to the defendant by someone else.  Begin this procedure by completing an Application for Garnishment. Once the application and Writ are completed you must have the clerk issued the Writ of Garnishment. The respondent (garnishee) has seven business days to reply.

Keep in mind that if you file a writ of garnishment to the defendant(s) employer before you verify employment (Verification of Employment) you could be liable for up to $1000.00 Utah Code 78A-2-216(3).
