How can I collect on an old judgement?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Mcloud, OK

I won a judgement against the corporation. This was back in 1998. My lawyer told me that even though I won that there was no way to make the corporation pay. Since that time I have heard that the corporation filed bankruptcy. I was not notified of the bankrupty. The owner of the company is still in business with a new company with a very similar name. It is the same type business.

My lawyer received no money from me since I have not received any money.

I have recently found out that the owner of the company has an airplane up for sale.
What can I do, if anything?

    Answered . In Oklahoma a judgment is only enforceable for five years unless you renew the judgment. Make sure you still have an enforceable judgment before you spend time on this issue.
