I'm sorry to hear about your dispute. With a judgment in hand against another party, it may be possible to obtain a judgment lien against that party's property to ensure there will be money available to pay the judgment. The topic of judgment liens is a little bit beyond my expertise, but there are some online resources that should be valuable: (1) Judgment Liens on Property in Florida; and (2) How to Collect a Judgment in Florida. Further, for more information on collecting judgments and judgment liens, the lawyers at Avvo.com might be helpful. Avvo has attorneys from all different practice areas (beyond construction law), and someone there is bound to be an expert on the subject of Florida judgment liens. Good luck!

RE: Mechanics Lien filed in State of New Mexico. Thank you for the response of New Mexico not requiring notice to listed parties of a lien being filed. My question is more directed to ” Is it to MY benefit to send “certified mail” notices to listed parties after there has been notices sent out regular mail? I was under the impression the service I used was going to send them certified but only sent them first class.

Mechanic’s Lien Rights – We worked as a sub-contractor under a General Contractor on a project, and the General Contractor had us sign a unconditional waiver and release on final payment form even though we have not been paid anything on the entire project yet. I have the document we signed, does that waive our rights to file a mechanics lien. I have an email stating that from the GC, and we wrote on the unconditional waiver that they owe us the total dollar amount.
