Winter Haven, FL asked in Collections and Small Claims for Florida

Q: How do I request a fact info sheet after I've been awarded a judgment?

The fact info sheet was not sent to the defendant (business and owner) with the final judgment notification. The defendant is ignoring this judgment.

A: If the judgment has language concerning the FIS, just do a motion requesting the court enter an order requiring the defendant respond to a FIS. Of course he is ignoring it - until you put pressure on him to voluntarily pay, he isn't going to do so.

A: There is no law preventing you from sending the judgment debtor a fact information sheet attached to a "Notice of Initiating Collection and Request for Financial Information." Every month.
