What is a Judgment?
JUNE 3, 2020
A judgment is an order issued by a court of law. If they are successful, the court issues a judgment against you. What Happens After a Judgment Is Entered Against You? The court enters a judgment against you if your creditor wins their claim or you fail to show up to court. You should receive a notice of the judgment entry in the mail. The judgment creditor can then use that court judgment to try to collect money from you.
