You don't file a judgment you file a lawsuit against a company. A judgment is what you get if you win the legal battle.

How do you file a claim or lien against a company who did not pay the account payables?

You can't just file a valid lien against a company. You have to have a statutory right to a lien on specific property. Therefore, unless you made improvements to their real estate, or did work on their vehicle, or are their attorney, or provided medical services, the only way you can claim a valid lien is to first sue the company and obtain a judgment. Then the judgment can be a lien against the company's real estate and you can also execute against its assets.

If a person has an IRS lien against them are they considered a convicted felon?

NO. A lien is nothing more than a public record that notifies other creditors that the IRS has a security interest against the Taxpayer's assets. The IRS can file a lien without ANY judicial review. And it's a civil matter, not criminal. It is similar to having your credit card company file a judgment against you for not paying (except they at least have to go to court to get a judgment).

What if the defendant in a judgment changes the name of the company that is named in the civil litigation?

A name change is irrelevant. The responsible parties are still the responsible parties. If the litigation is pending (which I'm guessing it's not if there's a judgment, but just in case), change the header on the litigation to reflect the new name change. E.G. John Doe v. Inspiron Technologies d/b/a Inspirational Computers. Inspiron Technologies being the initial name of the company and Inspirational Computers being the new company name. D/B/A stands for "doing business as." If you have a judgment and the company name has changed, the company is still liable to you for the damages in question. If the company has not paid you according to a judgment, file a motion in court against them, again using the original name and d/b/a the new name. Though you'd need to ask a lawyer in your jurisdiction the exact name of the motion you would file against the company in question.

What happens if a judgment is made against you before you file chapter 13 or 7?

That really has no bearing on the bankruptcy proceeding or the judgment. By this I mean that having a judgment against you will not necessarily disqualify you from being able to file for bankruptcy. However, under no scheme of bankruptcy proceeding will a judgment be discharged so if that is the reason for filing for bankruptcy then it will not do any good. Court judgments are under the category of nondischargeable debt.

How do you contest a fraudulent judgment against you?
