What is a judgment?

It is a court order against the debtor to pay the creditor what is due. The judgment can be satisfied in several ways, wage garnishment is the usual one. Levy against bank accounts.

Can a lien be placed on your home due to defaulted student loans?

The lender would need to sue you and win a judgment in its favor. It could then request a judgment lien that could be recorded in the land records.

Why should a judgment be paid if it cannot be removed from a credit report before seven years have expired?

Short answer, a valid judgment can be executed against the debtor's non exempt property at any time. A judgment that has been perfected as a lien against real property is more likely to be implemented as a forced sale of the property in question. And a judgment accrues interest until it is paid or satisfied with the judgment creditor.


What does a judgment mean on an unsecured credit card?

It means the creditor has won a lawsuit, been awarded a writ of judgment and can execute the judgment against non-exempt assets and property as defined by state law that belongs to the judgment debtor. The preferred method of executing a judgment is by wage garnishment, followed by bank account levy, the seizure and liquidation of non-exempt property and liens against real property. The state exemptions allowed for personal and real property when properly used can give the defendant/debtor considerable protection against the enforcement of a creditor judgment.


Once a credit card judgment has been placed in your name can you ignore it or do you have to pay it off?

If a judgment has been placed against you you will have to pay it off. You should probably contact the credit card company and see if you can work out a reduced payment or if they will forgive a certain amount of it.


Will a judgment on your credit report stop you from selling your property?

If a judgment has been granted that would signify that a lien has been placed upon your property.Therefore, the property cannot be sold until the debt has been paid in full.Or the court can order the property to be sold.If that did not happen in the original judgment grant it is unlikely that the judgment can be modified to allow it.If it is on your credit report, that is irrelevant,(for the time being). Because you are under a order by the court that your property cannot be sold or transferred.AnswerJudgements granted in small claims court can not be levied against personal HOMESTEADED property in certain states. TERXAS is one of those states. If your property is your personal home, and has been "homesteaded" at the local property tax office; (a simple procedure) the judgment can not keep you from selling your home, nor can it be forced and collected at the sale of your home. That would be a "slander of title" in Texas and in many other states that forbid attachments of such kind to be placed on your home. The person with the judgment would ave to take other avenues to collect, such as a "writ of execution".


How do you remove a judgment from a home that was awarded in a divorce if the deed to the property was never transferred to the non debtor ex-spouse?

If the judgment lien was placed before the divorce and not paid or settled the property could not have been conveyed to another party regardless of the terms divorce decree. If the couple lived in a community property state the property lien is against both of them even though only one spouse incurred the debt and the awarding of the home in the divorce decree is irrelevant as to the validity of the judgment. Before the deed can be conveyed to the spouse who was awarded the property the judgment will have to be paid or settled according to the terms of the lien holder.

What is a filed judgment?

It indicates the creditor plaintiff has won a lawsuit against the debtor defendent and a judgment has been entered in favor of the creditor. The creditor can enforce the judgment in accordance with the laws of the debtor's state of residency.

What assets or money can be taken from us if a judgment has been made against us to collect unpaid rent for a business we had to close?

It depends on the details. If the business was incorporated and the judgment was against the corporation the creditor can only take business property and assets. If you owned the business as individuals then a judgment creditor can take any of your assets to satisfy the judgment: bank accounts, vehicles, boats, equipment, real property, etc.


Can a lien be placed against a property which is only in the wife's name when the judgment is against the husband only?

No. If the property has always been in wife's name then it cannot be encumbered by a creditor of the husband. However, if the property was recently transferred by the husband and wife to the wife then the creditor may claim the transfer was a fraudulent conveyance and lacking any or significant consideration was made for the purposes of protecting the property from a creditor. A fraudulent conveyance will not protect the property from the husband's debt and may cause further problems.
