Supplementary Process

Winning your case is not the end of the battle. Unfortunately, often it is only the first step. Shocking as it may be, debtors usually don’t immediately pay after you have obtained judgment. Supplementary process is an inexpensive new action which forces the debtor into Court for an asset examination and a payment order.

If the debtor fails to appear for the examination or comply with the Court’s payment order, the Court can issue a capias or bench warrant, for the debtor’s arrest.

A capias or bench warrant is serious business. If the creditor desires, we will direct the Deputy Sheriff to physically arrest the debtor and literally haul them into Court to face the judge.
