Judgement Collection

GLCS Court Officers/ Deputy Sheriffs

The Great Lakes Civil Services Court Officer and Deputy Sheriff team is amongst the best in the region. Their life consists of being on the road all day and they love this! Why? Each and every team member knows that if it wasn’t being done the GLCS way, then it wasn’t going to get done at all or not with the full integrity that we persist with. This is why they are apart of the most distinguished to ever hold their titles. 

Judgement Collection Process

  1. Request and Order To Seize must be signed and approved.
  2. Plaintiffs may request to have GLCS pre-research judgement before sending case.
  3. Once plaintiff is ready to act, they send GLCS the judgement with any additional information regarding the defendant and their assets.
  4. Research team performs deep search in preparation for the Court Officer.
  5. Court officer receives case and begins attempting collect on debt. They will have 90 days to collect on the order.
  6. After the order is collected on, remits will be sent to plaintiff once a week every Thursday.

Dead Orders

We understand your frustration. You issue an order to seize and there is nothing but silence for the next 90 days. At the end of that time you are then sent an attempted service invoice. You now owe money to the Court Officer and are left empty-handed with your judgement. Rest assured, GLCS will NEVER bill for attempted service on a judgement. Send us your order today and we will show you why we are the best. 

How Are Judgements Collected?

Cash Collection

By far the easiest and most preferred, cash fulfills the judgement without having to exhaust other methods. 

Asset Seizure

Cars, boats, trailers, RV’s, or anything significant that is registered in the debtor’s name through the state. Assets are seized and sold at a sheriff’s auction where the cash received is entitled to the plaintiff.

House Levy

A residence levy is a last-effort method as it allows for possession of a house to fulfill the debt.

Wage Garnishment

A wage or tax garnishment may be the preferred form of judgement fulfillment for some. See our Garnishment page for more info about these and how they work.

Auctions

What happens to assets we seize and how do they get sold? The GLCS-held monthly Sheriff’s auctions. Unlike other companies who try to individually sell seized assets, our auctions yield the most promising results. Dating back to the origin of the company; rain, snow, tornado, or pandemic, our auctions always have an overwhelming turnout. Check out our Auctions page for more information about assets being sold and dates.
