Florida has long been known as a “debtors haven” because it is one of a handful of states that provide extensive protections (above and beyond federal law) to those who are being pursued for past due obligations. People who collect debts in Florida have limited tools with which to work, and debts often go uncollected as a result.
Because we are restricted by these laws, it is important to exploit every tool available while remaining in full compliance. Attorneys who specialize in debt collection know every angle that can be pursued. One of those, usually the “last resort”, is a levy, also sometimes referred to as an execution.
Most creditors fail to realize what can be done with a judgment in Florida, and often give up once the matter has gone to court. Some avoid court altogether. In our view, this is a mistake, especially when you consider the fact that Florida judgments are valid for 20 years. If you are serious about making recoveries, this is one method that can significantly boost your bottom line.
