Did you win your small claims case but the debtor still isn't paying?
Maybe you've discovered still more legal fees to pay, time to spend preparing documents, and court appearances to make, not to mention trying to find out what your debtor has that you can collect on.
If that sounds like more than you have time, money or energy for, consider assigning the judgment for a percentage of the principal and interest.
I take assignment of small claims judgments in the San Francisco Bay Area. As judgment assignee, I will track down your debtor and their assets, and cover the legal expenses. You would no longer deal with the court or your debtor.
