Period of Judgment’s Enforceability

July 5th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

A money judgment or a judgment for possession or sale of property is enforceable for 10 years after the date of judgment is entered. The ten year period may be extended if the judgment is renewed in a timely manner. Thus, unless the judgment is renewed or a statute provided otherwise, on expiration of the 10 year period the judgment cannot be enforced, all enforcement procedures under the judgment or a write or other issues under the judgment must cease, and any lien created in enforcing the judgment is extinguished.
