What are the costs of enforcing a judgment?Region: Ontario Answer # 571
Enforcing a judgment will cost you money. Regardless of whether you initiate an Examination Hearing, attempt garnishment, or use the court or Sheriff’s office to collect the debt, you will be responsible for paying costs and fees associated with these processes. You are, however, entitled to collect all costs of enforcing the judgment from the debtor.
For more information about the costs of collecting money from a debtor, contact the Small Claims Court office, visit the Ministry of the Attorney General online, or refer to the Ministry’s Guide to Fee Schedules.
