Writs of Execution and Levies

In addition to serving legal documents, the Essex County Sheriff’s Department Civil Process Division enforces court ordered Writs of Attachment and Executions on Money Judgments issued by the court. With an Execution on Money Judgment, the court has decided the Plaintiff is due monies by the defendant and the Execution allows the attorney/plaintiff to ask the Essex County Sheriff’s Department to enforce the execution.

The staff and deputies at the Essex County Sheriff’s Department have years of experience enforcing court judgments. As a law enforcement agency we are able to access sophisticated databases and can assist attorneys and plaintiffs with asset searches and seizures. Our professional and trained deputies are available to discuss executions with you and explain the options for enforcing an execution through the Essex County Sheriff’s office.
