Congratulations! You have won your case.  But, was it worth it? 

Sadly, winning a case does not guarantee that the defendant will actually pay you what the court says they owe.  The fact is that some people simply do not have the money to pay you, or (out of spite, defiance, or some other reason) they choose to brush off the court’s order and refuse to pay.  This post presents a couple of options that are available to try and convert the “win” into money in your pocket.
