Winning a Judgment Starts a Whole New Legal Process

How much do you know about civil court proceedings and judgments? If you are like most people, your knowledge is limited. You might not realize that a judgment is a court decision, for example. You also might not know that winning a judgment doesn't bring your case to a close. It actually ushers in a whole new legal process dictating how enforcement proceeds.

What Are Default Judgments in Civil Court?

Civil court can be a mysterious entity to people who never spend any time there. And because most of us have never been involved in civil litigation, it is easy to assume that what happens in civil court is nearly identical to what happens in criminal court.
