Supplementary Process

"Relentless Collection Attorneys"

Alan Cohen

Winning your case is not the end of the battle. Unfortunately, it is only the first step in most cases. As shocking as it may be, debtors usually don’t immediately pay what you are owed after you have obtained judgment. However, there are plenty of aggressive and effective methods that the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC may use in order to force your debtor’s hand to try to get you paid. Supplementary process is an inexpensive new action that forces the debtor into Court for an asset examination and a payment order.

In said court hearing, a court in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will determine whether your debtor is financially able to make payment based on the enforced judgment. In the event that they do not have the current means to repay their debts, we can go to our arsenal of aggressive post-judgment litigation tactics and relentlessly and effectively apply them to your case as needed. We will not stop fighting for you until you get paid, or until no one else can get you paid.

The Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC utilizes supplementary process as an aggressive alternative in cases where other forms of post judgment collection do not appear to be as cost effective for our clients. We have helped businesses in Boston, Worcester, Springfield and throughout Massachusetts collect their unpaid judgments through supplementary process. Call our experienced Massachusetts collections attorneys when you have an unpaid judgment.

Issuing of Additional Warrants

Suppose the debtor fails to appear for the examination or comply with the Court’s payment order after a supplementary process hearing has been completed. In such instances, the Court can issue a capias or bench warrant for the debtor’s arrest. Having to go through with either a capias or bench warrant is serious business. The threat of jail time will hopefully prompt your debtor into payment. If the creditor desires, we will direct the Deputy Sheriff to arrest the debtor and haul them into the Court to face the judge.

Although some may find it to be threatening, this aggressive method of debt collection is also an ethical one, and one that the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC have used with great success throughout our over 45 years of combined experience.
