Any judgment (exception small claims) can be inacted as a lien against real property. However, if the amount is disproportionately small compared to the property value, it can be appealed. Actually it can be appealed almost anytime, if the defendent wishes to pursue the matter.

Proof would have to be presented that the debt was valid before a judgment could be entered against the debtor. Since a judgment was entered then acceptable validation must have been provided to the court. Student loans both state and federal do not have SOL's, so the judgment is more than likely valid and enforceable.
