How often do you set up a payment arrangement with the losing party?
Do you pursue for wage garnishments immediately?
How often do you pursue wage garnishments?
Administrative Law Lawyer
The nature and degree of measures to be applied to enforcement of a judgment and collection against the assets of a judgment debtor will ordinarily take into account a number of factors including but not limited to the assets of the debtor that are subject to seizure or collection and the prospect for the judgment to be discharged by a bankruptcy filing.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
I agree with Ms. McCall. At our office, I first seek the client consent. Next, I normally will accept some payment plan rather than the "hassle" of chasing down the debtor (unless bankruptcy is imminent according to "our" information.) We are experienced in wage garnishments and do them from time to time.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.

I agree with counsel that an attorney would weigh several factors prior to determining whether a payment plan is the appropriate collection method. If you are represented by counsel, you consult with your lawyer about your particular case as it will be difficult for an attorney on this site to provide clear guidance without knowing the facts.
