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.

How long will a civil judgment remain on public record?

10-20 years depending on state laws and the type of judgment that was awarded.This varies from state to state, so check the laws of the state where the judgment was obtained. In NJ a judgment is valid as a judgment until it is paid or discharged through court process, like in bankruptcy. BUT: The judgment's effectiveness as a lien on the defendant's property is only for 20 years, but the judgment holder can extend it for another 20 years. The reason for the expiration is so that judgments that may have been paid but not discharged of record or just abandoned by the judgment holder do not clutter up the records.
