I sued a company and won my case.I finally have proof of it . They still haven't paid me .What do I do next , to get my money?

Both of the answers above are wrong. You have discovered the hidden problem with lawsuits. To get your money you need to file a petition with the Sheriff to execute on the judgment. The Sheriff will inventory the company's property and then schedule a sale to sell it. After taking his fee the Sheriff will turn the proceeds over to you. Do not go back to court, and do not try to take property yourself.

You have to wait a reasonable amount of time then take them back to court. Winning is only part one, collecting can take several separate court cases.

So how would that work? Do you think the judge goes out and seizes the defendant's property? Please don't try answering questions that you know nothing about.

No if you take him back for not complying with the court order you have to serve him to appear then the judge will order him to pay and may give a payment schedule and that's it . if he doesn't pay on schedule or quits after a few payments you have to serve him again and again the judge will order him to pay but that time the judge gets upset at him and hopefully will attach wages or threaten him if not keeping to the schedule he agreed to pay. Some people will pay after the second time in court some won't. Go to the court and ask the clerk about filing to serve him for non payment of the original court order

I've been through this in the business for non payment of bills due for services over $2000.00. Next is the forth time in court. This person just won't stick to a payment schedule. The other one was for property damage and I gave up on that one. There's no way that one is going to pay. I'm not sure what your case is about but good luck.

The court has already ordered the defendant to pay by finding in the plaintiff's favor; the next step is to execute on the judgment, not to seek another identical (and pointless) order. A final judgment is different from what you experienced, with different cases and a court-ordered payment plan.
