Judgements are public records. You can check with the original court where the judgment was filed or you can contact the holder of the judgment against you.

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.

If there is a judgment against you, the best thing to do is to pay. It will remain on your record indefinitely if you do not. You can argue the judgment in court, but once a judgment is entered it will likely not be reversed.

Can someone collect my income tax return for a judgment against me

A judgment against the trustee in his individual capacity will not affect the trust property. A judgment against the trustee as the trustee will become a lien on the trust property.

Laws vary by state and my comments are based on California law. There are many procedures that might apply depending on the type of lien you are referring to. If you have a judgment against someone and you know of a third party who owes money to the judgment debtor, you can obtain a writ of exeuction and have the sheriff levy on that claim or you can file a motion for an assignment order transfer the right of payment to you. If the judgment debtor has a judgment against someone else, you can have that judgment assigned to you can you can then collect that judgment.

No. The creditor can foreclose on the property (and virtually always do) since that is the way they get your name off of the deed and someone else's name on it. And, during this foreclosure, they will list you as a defendant since you are the property owner until the sheriff sale takes place. But, when the judgment is rendered in the foreclosure, it should be an "in rem" judgment, which means against the property only, and not an "in personam" judgment, which means against you personally. If they do get an in personam judgment against you, it is usually a good idea to notify the court and let them know about the bankruptcy so they remove the in personam judgment.

If the husband was not liable for the debt, then his wages cannot be garnished to collect on the judgment. The judgment is against the person who incurred the debt.

Yes, a landlord can report a judgment against a tenant. Often, the court will report the judgment to the credit bureau.

You will be served with a court order if there is a judgment against you. But long before that you would have been notified of the court proceeding.

Anytime that you have a judgment on you no matter where you are you have to pay it. There are some instances where you may not have to but it don't matter if you are in PA or LA a judgment is a judgment.

The only thing you can do is to make an offer to the person or agency that hold the judgment against you. But you should know that they do not have to accept your offer.

If it is against property..if it is a judgement against you generally, then no.

Contact the clerk of the court or the court administrator where the judgment was issued and request a copy of the writ of judgment.

I don't know what kind of judgment you are asking about. The Bible teaches that only God can judge according to the truth: Rom 2:2 But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.
