In the state of Kansas, a civil judgment lasts 7 years. However, a judgment can be extended if it is re-opened in court before the 7 year deadline.

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.

Dear Sirs, How long does a civil jugement last in New Jersey. Plus which is the webb site to check all the JUDGEMENTS you have on your name. in Bergen county. NJ please reply.

Until it is satisfied or vacated.

There is no indication as to how long the first trump will last, but assuredly it will last long enough for all peoples of the world to hear it.

A small claims court judgment stays on your record permanently unless it is satisfied, then it will probably still be there but show satisfied. Most people do not look at a judgment if it is over 7 years old.

Once they have the judgment, they can make the application right away. They simply have to provide the court order to the employer to begin the process.

The usual time limit is ten years at a maximum of 8% interest. N.Y. does not allow most judgments to be renewed. A judgment in New York is valid for twenty years. During that time it can enforced against a judgment debtor's income and assets. A lien of a judgment resulting from the docketing of a judgment with the County Clerk is good for ten years, and can be renewed for another ten years.

Until it's paid. Judgments are valid from 5-20 years depending upon the type of judgment rendered. Most judgments are renewable and can last indefinitely until voluntarily paid, satisfied or successfully executed by the judgment creditor against the judgment debtor

Generally, the judgment creditor must request that the court issue a judgment lien. That lien can and should be recorded in the land records immediately, usually by the sheriff's department.

Judgments can be entered by the court in either civil or criminal cases. Today, most courts in the US are courts of general jurisdiction, meaning they can hear any type of case. In larger counties usually a courtroom is devoted just to criminal cases and another to civil cases, but the judges usually take turns, rotating from time to time. Broadly speaking there are only civil and criminal cases, but some states create a third category, sometimes called "special proceedings" or something similar, for adoptions, involuntary commitments to mental care, foreclosures of mortgages, and other odd sorts of cases. If a court enters a judgment in a civil case it goes on the judgment docket of the county in which the judgment was rendered. If the judgment included an award of money damages, payment of court costs of the other party, or payment to the court for its costs, those financial awards can be enforced for a number of years, often ten. This is an "execution" on the judgment and can be had only against the assets of the party against whom the judgment was issued, and only those assets in the county where the judgment is docketed. A plaintiff who wins a lawsuit, gets a judgment docketed, and a few years later learns that the defendant has assets in another county, can have a "transcript of judgment" sent from the county where the judgment was won to the county where the defendant has assets, and have the judgment added to the docket where the assets are located, and then may proceed to try to collect where the assets are through an execution. In practice this is seldom done. Most states allow a judgment debtor to "exempt from execution" some of his property - so much in dollar value of the home where he lives, so much value in an automobile, so much in tools of the trade, and so on. In practice it is very difficult for plaintiffs to locate assets of the defendant and have them seized and sold by the county sheriff and the money obtained applied toward the judgment. Other than by insurance companies, most judgments get paid, if they get paid at all, when the judgment debtor goes to try to get a loan on a house in the county where the judgment is docketed. If the judgment debtor has land (including a house, or not) in the county where the judgment is docketed, or acquires land afterward (so long as it is within the period when the judgment may still be collected), the judgment instantly becomes a lien on that land, just like a mortgage. Therefore before the bank will make a loan the bank will require a "title search" which will disclose from the county records any judgments lodged against the borrower. To get the loan to buy the house, the judgment will have to be paid. After ten years judgments can be renewed, very easily, but most plaintiffs do not bother.

Normally the parties, not the court, files the judgment. There is no time requirement for the judge to RENDER a decision.

As long as the court you are charged in has jurisdiction, yes.

7 years and is collectable at 12 % interest

It depends on if it was a small claims judgment or a civil judgment. Small claims are good for 6 years from the date of judgment and civils are good for 10 years. The judgments can be renewed before they expire.

There is no statute of limitations on court orders. The judgment is good until it is satisfied. And if not satisfied in a timely manner, you could be cited for contempt of court.

A judgment stays on your credit report until it is satisfied or proven falls in a court of law. The only way to remove it is to pay it off.

Unsatisfied judgments remain on the judgment debtor's CR for seven (7) years. A judgment can be valid for 5-20 years depending upon the laws of the state where the judgment was granted. Most judgments are renewable and can remain valid for a very long time, this is only one reason why a judgment can be extremely damaging to a consumers financial status.

It depends on the county. It is usually 2-3 months before the sale is set.

A judgment stays on your credit report until it is satisfied or for 14 years. Sometimes it will stay on your credit report past 14 years.

The statute of limitations to sue for a judgment will vary by state and the type of claim. For example, California has a 4-year statute of limitation for breach of written contract and judgments in California last for 10 years and are renewable. A judgment will stay on your credit so long as it is valid.
