The Post-Judgment and Miscellaneous Remedies Section of the Circuit Court of Cook County is a section within the First Municipal District. Judges in this section preside over post-judgment and supplementary proceedings. In addition, they hear original actions such as replevin, detinue, confession of judgment, and petitions to revive judgments. 

Post-judgment proceedings include enforcement of a judgment, supplementary proceedings, non-wage garnishment and wage deduction proceedings. A supplementary proceeding is a vehicle to discover or examine a judgment debtor’s assets, or to prohibit judgment debtors from transferring assets.


The attached Room 1401 Standing Order dated March 17, 2021, applies to all proceedings in Room 1401 from March 17, 2021, forward. The most significant changes to our Standing Order are that all submissions will now be to a single email address,, and all Motions are by request only, using the Notice of Motion form at Appendix B-2. There is no longer an 8:45 Routine Motion Call. The Court will set all Motion hearings. The only time Zoom instructions should be sent are for judgment debtor Citation examinations and Replevin/Detinue service of process. Third-party Citation Return Dates are an answer date only. No Zoom instructions should be sent with third-party Citations, and no one should appear unless the Court sets a hearing on the third-party Citation.


If you have been served with a Citation or received a Notice of a Citation or a Garnishment (including a Wage Garnishment), please read this important information.
