Reviving Judgments

Judgments issued by Colorado's County Court's are good for a period of six years.  Judgments issued by Colorado's District Court's are good for a period of 20 years.  In order for a judgment to continue past its expiration period, a judgment creditor must "revive" the judgment before the end of the six or 20 year period (whichever is applicable).  To do this, a creditor must file a Notice to Show Cause for Revival of Judgment and personally serve that on the Judgment Debtor.  Once served, a judgment debtor will have 14 days to show cause as to why the judgment should not be revived.  If you have been served with a Notice to Show Cause for Revival of Judgment, you should contact an experienced attorney to discuss your options.
