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.

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.

You have 10 days to file a claim with your insurance company.

It's the same as any statues of limitation for any judgments. A judgment can stay on a credit file for seven years. You can collect on a judgment up to as long as 20 years.

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

You will have to check your home owner's policy. It is a contract that you have with the insurance company and will specify how long you have to file a claim.

Judgments generally remain on a CR for seven years. In some cases a judgment can be renewed and therefore it is possible for it to remain an indefinite period of time.

It can be listed on credit reports for up to 10 years. If your question is how long will it be on file meaning the official court docket (a public record), the answer is forever.

First, companies don't normally file C-13, but C-11. Court records are published virtually daily.

The judgment will only stay on your credit record for 7 years. If you go to free annual credit report (www.annualcreditreport.com) You can look at your credit report for free. But be aware you can only do this once a year. But where the judgment is it will tell you when it will be removed from your report. As for how long it will stay on the public record... I do not know. I am in persute of this answer myself. But I think you can call the court house and find out. Because I'm sure your more worried about being able to find a place to live then the judment. Well good luck. And if you find anything out will you post on here??ThanksAnswerAn eviction is public information that will be available to anyone requesting it from the court and will be available until the court either destroy the file or it's removed from their database. I assume you're more worried about the judgment that results from the eviction. The judgment will show up on your credit record and remain on until paid.

It stays on the record in the land records forever. However, it loses effect once the statute of limitations has passed or when it has been paid and a release is recorded.

The majority of judgments are renewable and therefore can remain a part of public records indefinitely. A judgment will remain on a credit report for the required seven years and when/if it is renewed it can be reentered on the CR.

Seven years, but most judgments are renewable and can be reentered on the credit report at the time of renewal.
