Enforcement of judgments
If a court has decided that someone must pay you an amount of money or undertake a particular action (judgment) and this has not happened or you have not received the money, you may want to ask the court to enforce the decision.
Depending on the national rules, there are different means available to help you to enforce the judgment. For this, you must ask the court to grant you for example a warrant of execution, an attachment of earnings order or a third party debt order.
