i have a judgment from years ago and i don't know how to go about the whole thing.
Answer: If your credit card company obtains a judgment against you they may take any property of value that they can find.
Go to the clerk of the courts and pay for a record search.
Yes. As long as the plaintiff has a valid claim against you, you can be sued and a judgment against you obtained. People with no assets are often referred as judgment-proof. This means that even if they are sued and a judgment against them is obtained, the plaintiff will not be able to seize any assets. But if you are working, you might have your wages garnished under the judgment. If a judgment against you is obtained it will be on the record for a certain number of years, depending on the state's laws. If you ever buy a house or come into money at a later date, the judgment will be there and you may have to pay it before buying that house or the plaintiff might find out about your new asset and seize it. Also, if you are not working at the time the lawsuit would be filed against you, you might get a job in the future and then your wages can be garnished. The determining factor about being sued is not whether you have money. It is whether the plaintiff has a valid claim.
The local register of deeds should have an index of liens, foreclosures and other judgments against properties recorded there (for the municipality or county).
In the state of Wisconsin the statute of limitations is 6 years. That is 6 years from the time the services were rendered or from the date of last payment. If they obtain a judgment on you then the statute of limitations can be up to 20 years from date of judgment. In the state of Wisconsin the statute of limitations is 6 years.

Generally yes, against the husband's interest only. However, they would need to find the property first and obtain a judgment in Connecticut.
I don't know if the laws are the same everywhere, but we had to get a judgment against someone and had a lien placed on his house. We were told that if we went back to court before the 7 years were up we could get another judgment against him and keep the lien in place. He's had a lien on his home for over 10 years now -- and until he pays his debt or the law changes we'll keep going back to court. Of course, he owes us a LOT of money. A judgment has to be renewed by the plaintiff at set intervals, determined by law. You can find the SOL relative to judgments for your state, and if the statute has expired, contact the court to see if the judgment has been renewed by the plaintiff. If not, they can't collect.
The lien is still valid, so yes, they can repo it.

Depending on the state you live in, judgments can be renewed. If the person entitled to the judgment doesn't try to collect or renew, when the judgment expires, you should probably contact your court clerk to find out how to get it removed from all records.
Check the records in the land recorder or tax assessors office in the city or county where the property is located.
Totally different if it is a judgement for you or against you. One you owe, the other you have to find some way to collect. Please clarify your position.
The court will try and contact you via mail, but they do not need proof that you were contacted, and you do not have to be present in order for your creditor to win. The creditor only has to provide proof that the debt is owed. You want to avoid this at all costs, for it is after a judgment is issued that a creditor can seize bank accounts, assets or garnish wages. In addition, it is easy to renew a judgment once its SOL has past. If the creditor is diligent about his renewals, you could find yourself in the position where a judgment against you never expires. A judgment will drop off your credit report after 7 years, but your creditor can pursue you until the debt is paid.
Contact the office of the clerk of the court where the judgment was entered. If you do not know the specific court then contact the circuit court clerk's office. Or you can do a search of public records, however such sites are generally three months or more behind in posting judgment awards and other public judicial information.
Usually six to eight years, it depends on how long the foxes can find it.
Indiana SOL's are, open accounts (credit cards,etc.) six (6) years; written contract for payment of money (promissory notes, etc.) before 9/1/82 10 years, after 8/31/82 6 years; written contracts for goods or services 10 years; domestic judgment against real estate 10 years; domestic judgment against a person 20 years; foreign judgments 10 years ('foreign' refers to abstract judgments filed from a different state). A summary can be found on www.cardreport.com. For the complete Indiana Code for civil procedures www.state.in.us. Not all information concerning state laws are up to date, and state legislative sites can be difficult to assess and find the information wanted. Please take note, SOL's can be used only as a valid defense in a lawsuit, they do not designate the time a debt can be pursued for collection.
you can find a notice of assignment but im not sure if this is the same as the assignment of judgment itself. http://www.aopc.org/Forms/Default.htm

If its a lawsuit that ended as a judgement, you can check with the circuit clerk and they should be able to give you more information. Judgements are also usually listed on your credit report.
Contact the clerk of the court or the court administrator where the original judgment writ was issued.
The judgment part indicates that the creditor has won the lawsuit and been awarded a judgment. The collection may indicate that the debt is still outstanding or has been paid. Public means, well simply that. Anyone who is interested can find out the information. For instance if there are delinquent taxes, resulting in a lien against real estate.
If you are one of the named parties either as plaintiff or defendant, you can contact the clerk of the circuit court in the county in which the judgment was granted to for information on the procedure for obtaining copies of legal documents. If you wish to find out if a judgment is in place against real property you can do so by searching the public records of the state's revenue/taxation department in the county where the property is located.
A judgment occurs when a creditor takes you to court, sues you, and wins his case against you. The creditor must do this before the statute of limitations has expired for the original debt. Typically, the court will try and contact you via mail, but they do not need proof that you were contacted, and you do not have to be present for your creditor to win. The creditor only has to provide proof that the debt is owed. You want to avoid this at all costs; for it is after a judgment is issued that a creditor can seize bank accounts, assets, or garnish wages. In addition, it is easy to renew a judgment once its statute of limitations has passed. In effect, if the creditor is diligent about his renewals, you could find yourself in the position where a judgment against you never expires. A judgment will drop off your credit report after seven years, but your creditor can hound you until the debt is paid.
