There are several classifications of judgments, but they are all executed by the same basic method. A judgment creditor may execute the writ according to the laws of the judgment debtor's state. Some ways of enforcing a judgment are; income garnishment or levy against bank accounts or seizure and sale of non exempt property or liens against real property. The judgment debtor is allowed specific exemptions for real and personal property, exemptions will differ from state-to-state. A consumer who believes they may be sued for a debt should familiarize themselves with their rights under state and federal law as to what property can be protected from a judgment creditor.

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.
