This is a court order instructing the Sheriff to enforce your judgment in the county where the assets are located.

This is a court order instructing the Sheriff to enforce your judgment in the county where the assets are located. This may be a different county from the one that issued the judgment, or where the party lives. The Judicial Council form used to obtain a writ of execution is: • Writ of Execution (EJ-130) Instructions for completing this form are available at the end of this Guide. Step 2b: Adding Costs and Interest If you wish to add additional costs incurred after entry of judgment, such as the costs associated with enforcing the judgment (e.g., the cost of issuing the writ of execution, levying officers’ fees, fees for the debtor’s examination, etc.) or accrued interest on your judgment amount, you must file a Memorandum of Costs after Judgment (MC-012) with your Writ of Execution (EJ-130). You must serve your Memorandum of Costs after Judgment (MC-012) on the judgment debtor prior to filing. The judgment debtor has 10 days after service of the Memorandum of Costs after Judgment (MC-012) to oppose it by filing a motion to tax costs (Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) § 685.070(c)). File the following items with the court: • Writ of Execution (EJ-130) (original + 2 photocopies) • Memorandum of Costs after Judgment (MC-012), if desired (original + 2 photocopies) • File-endorsed (stamped) copy of the judgment • Filing fee (currently $25, current fees bank levies can only be served by a Sheriff or registered process server. A bank levy is a one-time event, and only attaches the funds in the account at the time the bank is served. Therefore, timing service of your levy can be very important – you will want your papers served on a day when there is a lot of money in the account. For this reason, some judgment creditors prefer to have a registered process server (rather than the Sheriff) serve the bank, so they can specify the exact date for service. You can find registered process servers in the Yellow Pages or from the directory of the National Association of Professional Process Servers at www.napps.org/default.aspx. If you hire a process server, they will be responsible for delivering documents to the bank, judgment debtor, other account holders, and the Sheriff. The Sheriff’s Department will handle all other aspects of the bank levy, including receiving and releasing funds. When considering when to have your levy served, keep in mind that your writ of execution must be valid at the time of service. Writs of execution are valid for only 180 days after issued by the court.To have your documents served by the Sacramento County Sheriff, bring the items listed below to the Sheriff’s Civil Division, 3341 Power Inn Road, Room 313. The Sacramento County Sheriff can only perform service within Sacramento County; if the institution is located in a different county, you will need to contact either the Sheriff of that county or a registered process server. Ask your server what he or she will need. You will likely need the following documents: • Original Writ of Execution (EJ-130) • Sheriff’s Instructions for Bank Levy or Letter of Instruction to process server • Cash or check for the Sheriff’s fee (currently $35 (California Government Code (Govt) § 26750). This is the fee for having the Sheriff process the levy; it must be paid even if a registered process server will be serving the documents. As applicable, also include: • Original + 2 photocopies of your Spousal Affidavit
