Update on April

I stopped at the King County Courthouse in Seattle today and filed a "Notice of Non-Payment" in that case I have against April. Basically, the form says that she hasn't paid up, and please would you transfer the case to the civil docket so that I can pursue collection through the courts. I could have done this on the first of July, but I was running around and didn't get around to it. Once the court gets the judgment transfered to the civil docket of the District Court, I can move to garnish her wages or bank account. I may be able to file a lien against property she owns, namely her car. Not sure about that. I already can pursue her through a collection agency, but they will just take a third of the money and all of the fun. I can also transfer the case to Superior Court and have some of her property siezed and auctioned off. That's the most difficult route. I have to check back with the District Court in about two weeks to see if all the paperwork has been taken care of and to obtain a civil docket case number. Once that's been done, I wait until I know she has money in her bank account. Then I move to garnish her account. The bank then locks down the account. She has time to appeal the garnishment (because there are some limited exceptions on money that can be garnished), but that could take up to 20 days to happen. During that time, the money in the account, up to $1128.14, is frozen. If she doesn't contest the garnishment, the money is mine. If she does, well I might not get all my money at once. Oh, and all the costs of garnishment are born by her.
