    Answered . My out of state colleagues are right technically, but in New York City, call the city marshal processing the judgment, and see how much they say they are going to collect. They will help you understand the numbers. Make sure your records and their records agree on how much has been taken. When the judgment is paid, make sure the marshal returns his writ satisfied, and the lawyer for the plaintiff files a satisfaction of judgment form.
