The statute of limitations is your time limit when it comes to judgments. The statute of limitations is what governs the amount of time a judgment is enforceable. Due to the strict nature of the statute of limitations, courts offer extensions for judgments that reach the statute of limitations in order for creditors to have enough time to collect what they are owed. It is understandable to be frustrated with a debtor who constantly avoids phone calls, payment requests, and even moves states to avoid paying what they owe. But do not give up or else your judgment may lapse and become unenforceable.
