post-judgment litigation

Comparative law notes


Partially analogous concept: "Post-judgment litigation" is "any legal action that seeks to enforce or to modify a previous final judgment of the Court. Usually such litigation involves the same parties to the prior proceeding. A final judgment is the Court's ultimate decision in a case and signifies the conclusion of the main work of the Court. Enforcement of final judgments involves either compelling a party to pay a certain sum of money found by the Court to be due and owing to the other party, or to perform or refrain from performing some act described in the final judgment. Typical examples are spousal or child support."
