A judgment collects interest for as long as it remains

unsatisfied (paid). Likewise a judgment can be executed at any time

before it expires against any non protected property belonging to

the debtor. Most states allow judgments to be valid for 10-20 years

and many are renewable, meaning they can last indefinitely.
