Legal definition of Judgments
Credit Repair Legal Terminology


a judgement, if recorded, becomes a matter of public record. If you have property or buy property, a title search will turn up items of public record.
The judge can order that your assets be sold to pay the judgement.
A recorded judgment gives the creditor or collection agency the legal right to try and recover payment for a period of up to 20 years. After this 20 year period is up the plaintiff can file a renewal.
Judgments may stay on your credit report for up to 7 years.
