What happens after the trial?

If you are the plaintiff, and the judge decides in your favor, the judge can order the person you have sued to pay you the money that is owed. The judge's decision in the case is called a judgment. If the Court has awarded a judgment in your favor, you should ask the defendant to pay you immediately. If the defendant is not present, you should let them know that a judgment has been awarded to you and request that they pay you.
