Order for Financial Disclosure
State Law provides that if a person obtains a judgment for money, he or she is entitled to receive information regarding the financial status of the unsuccessful party within 15 days after entry of the judgment. A form called Order for Financial Disclosure will be mailed to the judgment debtor.
Failure to Provide Information
Failure of the judgment debtor to provide this information in writing to the judgment creditor is punishable by court-imposed sanctions. The judgment creditor may compel the judgment debtor to appear in court and disclose this information by filing a Petition and Order for Hearing on Contempt. This form is available in the Clerk of Court office in the Government Center. If the judgment debtor fails to appear at this hearing, the court may issue a Body Attachment, also know as warrant for arrest.
