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 criminal record is forever.
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.
Most courts never destroy their records.
