If an individual or Company owe you money, then what are the chances of you actually recovering that money?
Even before considering whether the Court would judge in your favour, it is better to first ask: Am I realistically able to obtain payment from the debtor? After all, what would be the point of a money Judgment that you cannot turn into money in your pocket?
