Collecting an Oklahoma judgment –> The Matrix

Have you ever wondered how an Oklahoma court judgment is turned into cash?

Good question. As most people know, get an Oklahoma judgment is only one step in the collection process. Rarely does a person owing a judgment simply write a check to pay it off and the State of Oklahoma does not usually collect judgments on behalf of parties in a lawsuit.

This is where the collection process kicks in. I outline some of the methods and steps in the post-judgment collection process for an Oklahoma judgment below:

The other wildcard in the Oklahoma judgment collection process is that the person owing the judgment has to have something to collect.  This is where the old saying about not being able to get blood out of a turnip comes in.

Do you have Oklahoma judgment that needs to be collected? If so, let me know, I can’t guarantee that I will take your case, but I will take a look at and give you some guidance.
