What is an execution?
An execution allows a court officer to seize property belonging to the defendant which can be sold to pay your judgment. To file an execution against property, you may pick up a copy of the form (MC 19) at the court clerk's window. Also available online. In order to do this however, you will have to wait 21 days after your small claims judgement was signed, pay a nominal fee, and need to know where the defendant lives and what assets he/she may have. For the online form please visit the Michigan Courts Website.
