What is a judgment?
A judgment is a debt that has been made into a lien on your property. If you cannot pay a creditor, the creditor may decide to start a lawsuit against you. The entry of judgment against you puts a lien on all real property you have in the County where the judgment is entered. The lien can reach land, checking accounts, cars, and potentially anything you own that has value.
