If the lawsuit was filed before the expiration of the state's SOL then the suit is valid and a judgment award would be valid and could be executed against the debtor according to the laws of the debtor's state.

Until the debt is paid or until the judgment expires.


A judgment occurs when a creditor takes you to court, sues you, and wins his case against you. The creditor must do this before the statute of limitations has expired for the original debt. Typically, the court will try and contact you via mail, but they do not need proof that you were contacted, and you do not have to be present for your creditor to win. The creditor only has to provide proof that the debt is owed. You want to avoid this at all costs; for it is after a judgment is issued that a creditor can seize bank accounts, assets, or garnish wages. In addition, it is easy to renew a judgment once its statute of limitations has passed. In effect, if the creditor is diligent about his renewals, you could find yourself in the position where a judgment against you never expires. A judgment will drop off your credit report after seven years, but your creditor can hound you until the debt is paid.

No. You cannot "remove" a lien without paying the amount due and recording an appropriate discharge from the creditor. The only other way a lien will become inactive is when the statute of limitations has passed and the creditor has not recorded an extension of the original lien. For example, In Massachusetts a recorded attachment is good for six years. If the creditor wants to continue the lien, an extension must be recorded before the six year period expires. If not done, the attachment will be no longer effective.


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.


No. A judgment must be renewed within 10 years under California Code of Civil Procedure, section 337.5 or it becomes unenforceable. However, if a defendant failed to timely raise this statute of limitations in defense, it could be waived.

According to several websites I visited a civil judgment is 10 years in Missouri. However, they can file legal paper work to renew it before it expires so it can possibly be enforced until satisfied or overridden in the case of bankrupt able debt.

Warrants are active until they are withdrawn, quashed, or the statute of limitations on the offense charged in the warrant expires.


Judgments will remain on the debtor's CR for seven years or until the SOL expires from the time of execution. An SOL if applicable is established by the terms of the judgment writ not by the SOL of the state regarding debt collection. The majority of judgments are renewable in the sense that once the 7 years expire the judgment holder can, if the judgment remains valid have it reentered on the judgment debtor's credit report.

Yes, they must be aware of the statute of limitations. If they do not file suit before it expires, they will not be able to bring their opponent to court.


A statute of limitations is related to bringing a law suit. As such, there is no such thing as a statute of limitations related to a power of attorney. The power expires when revoked by the grantor or the death of the grantor.


If there is a judgment lien on your property in Massachusetts the recorded lien is good for six years.

Yes. The statute of limitations governs how long you remain liable, in the sense that once the statute has expired, a suit by the creditor will be dismissed if the debtor raises the statute of limitations as a defense. In general, the statute of limitations begins to run when you default on the note or vehicle installment sales contract, not when the car is repossessed. Repossession is one remedy available to a creditor who has a security interest, but it is not the only one. Very few notes limit a creditor to a single remedy. In general, the creditor can also bring a suit against you for the balance owed regardless of whether or not the collateral is repossessed. In most states, the statute of limitations will begin to run when you missed enough payments to meet the definition of "default" specified in the contract or note. Relying on the statute of limitations to avoid a debt has its risks. The statute may be "tolled" by a variety of acts. Leaving the state where the debt was contracted, for example, often stops the clock until you return. In many states, making a partial payment sets the clock back to 0, so the limitations period begins to run from the date of the last payment. In some states, merely making a promise to make a payment, even orally, is enough to re-start the limitations period. Technically, when the statute of limitations expires, it does not wipe out the debt, it only prevents the creditor from bringing suit to enforce his/her rights. In theory, he/she or an assignee of the original creditor can continue to dun you forever, even if they can't take you to court.


The expired judgment falls off your credit report when it expires or seven years after first being reported, whichever is longer.


A prenuptial agreement is a contract between a married couple. As such, actions resulting from the breach will be limited by the civil limitations. The agreement itself never expires.


The seven year rule usually applies to a credit report entry not the length of a judgment. In Illinois judgments are usually valid for 20 years with the addition of a new law they can now be revived (renewed) for another 7 after the expiration of the original one. However, the judgment creditor/holder must petition for the renewal before the 20 year time limit expires. This is one of several reasons why a judgment lien is so damaging to the judgment debtor. Another one being that judgment amounts accrue interest until they are paid.


A mechanic's lien serves to hold your place in line on the record title as a creditor WHILE YOU FILE a civil action against the person who owes you money. A mechanic's lien expires after a short period, usually 90 days. You are expected to obtain a court judgment and record a judgment lien against the property within the 90 day period. If you don't the mechanic's lien simply expires and you lose your place in line as a creditor. If you have a contract for services that has been breached you can still file a civil claim. If you are successful the court will issue a judgment in your favor and that judgment lien will be recorded in the land records and a copy will be served on the property owner by the sheriff. During the time you are waiting for your day in court other liens may be recorded that will take priority over yours.
