Court Services: Enforcing Court Orders

Provided by: Government of Saskatchewan - Justice

View information about this organization

Service Description

If enforcement is necessary, there are legal processes in place to enable a Sheriff to collect money owed. The courts also have other procedures that can be employed to enforce other court orders that do not involve money. The procedures do not happen automatically and it is up to the person seeking enforcement to apply to begin the process.

Individuals must first issue a court order in the Court of King’s Bench. Once issued in the Court of King’s Bench, the judgment can then be legally enforced through the office of the Sheriff. The Sheriff then has the authority to investigate a judgment debtor’s assets and debts and the authority to seize and sell a judgment debtor’s property, including bank accounts, wages, partnership interests, securities, crops, other goods and lands. Visit the website for more information.

NOTE: Enforcing a judgment is not free. Even if you do not use a lawyer, you will have to initially pay Sheriff’s fees.

Application Process

If the party against whom an order has been made (the Judgment Debtor) does not voluntarily pay, it is up to the person seeking to get paid (the Judgment Creditor) to enforce the judgment and collect the money.

The first step to enforcing a judgment is to issue it in the Court of King's Bench. Visit website for further details on enforcing child and spousal support orders and enforcing money judgments.


Even if you do not use a lawyer, you will have to pay Sheriff’s fees. Although some of the fees are added to the amount the defendant owes you, you have to pay those fees initially.
