Fieri facias

“Fieri facias” is a legal term in Latin that means “that you cause to be made” in English. It is often used in the context of a court order or writ issued by a judge to enforce a judgment. A “fieri facias” writ typically instructs a sheriff or law enforcement officer to take and sell the property of a debtor in order to pay a judgment debt. This means that the court enforces its judgment by enabling the creditor to collect the money owed from the debtor’s assets or property. This term is commonly used in legal proceedings in the United States and other common law jurisdictions.
