In New York, a civil judgment is good for 10 years, renewable once for another 10 years. Good luck!

Unsure as to any 'statute of limitations' connected with parking tickets, but it sure might affect your ability to renew the tags when the registration comes due.

There are not specific SOL's that apply to judgments in any US state. Judgments are granted for a specified amount of time usually from 5-20 years, with the majority of judgments being renewable. They become invalid if the judgment creditor fails to renew or the court denies the motion for renewal. Judgments are extremely damaging to a credit rating and continue to accumulate interest until they are paid or settled

Yes, a civil judgment is good for 10 years from the date of the judgement. Once that 10 years is up they can renew the judgment again for another 10 years... After that 10 years its a dead judgment.

Is there a Statute of Limitations in the State of Florida on collecting of a judgement that was awarded in a divorce case? If so, what is the time frame? The holding in the Adams v. Adams case says that Florida judgments are good for 20 years, and that prior to expiry they may be sued upon to renew them. It has been cited in subsequent cases: http://www.2dca.org/opinions/Opinion_Pages/Opinion_Page_2009/August/August%2019,%202009/2D09-877.pdf

It will never run out. They have your drivers license on record and they'll just get you when you go to renew your license, and THEN apply any additional penalties to it.
