Idaho Rules for Small Claims Actions Rule 14. Execution.

Execution on a judgment must be in the same manner as in the district court and the plaintiff must prepare the execution. However, the clerk of the court may assist in the preparation of the execution when requested by the plaintiff. The clerk must issue the execution when requested by the successful party but not until any appeal is final or until the 30-day statutory appeal period has passed. However, if the court entered a default judgment, the clerk may issue execution immediately. The sheriff anywhere in the state may serve an execution. The party enforcing the judgment must pay the fees for the issuance, service and enforcement of the execution. Those fees will be added to the amount to be paid by the unsuccessful party.
