Best Answer

Judgments accrue interest and can be from 5-20 years of duration with the majority of them being renewable. This means that a judgment can literally last for the debtor's lifetime (in some cases, beyond), with the debtor owing several times the original debt. In most states the debtor does not actually have to be served with the notice of judgment, as the law only requires that a reasonable attempt has been made. If the debtor attempts to avoid service, he or she may also be forfeiting their right to protect personal and real property from creditor attachment or seizure.

How long a judgment is valid?

In perpetuity, unless the judgment contains some kind of wording which declares that it expires after a certain date, or upon some other circumstance. It depends on what State the judgment is in. I doubt any State has judgments that remain valid in perpetuity. For example, in North Carolina, a judgment is valid (meaning it can be enforced by a creditor) for 10 years from the date the judgment is entered in the court house records, and it can be renewed for 10 years. The record of the judgment will stay on the books forever, but it becomes irrelevant after the applicable statute of limitations has run. Check your State statutes or ask your local court clerk's office about how long judgments are valid in your State.
