Is there a statute of limitations on executing my judgment?
Yes. Your state law sets a limit on how long a judgment is
enforceable, called a Statute of Limitations. This period is
usually from 5 to 20 years
(South Carolina is 10 years from date judgment granted)
starting on the date your judgment was awarded. Some states
provide a way of renewing your judgment for an additional period
Is there interest on the unpaid judgment?
Usually, yes. Most judgments include a provision for the payment
of interest from the day it was awarded. The actual interest
rate and calculation process varies from state to state. With
interest, your judgment could be worth significantly more than
the day it was awarded.

have a judgment awarded in one state against a debtor who
resides in another state. Can you help?
In most cases, yes. Especially if the judgment debtor answered
your complaint or made an appearance at your hearing. If the
judgment debtor didn't appear, the judgment is called a
default judgment which is considered a weaker judgment.
Each of us has the right to confront our accusers and to defend
against any legal claims. So, if the debtor is able to show the
court that he was not properly served, or served in the wrong
capacity, he can file a motion asking the court to set aside the
judgment. Overcoming this hurdle can be one of the most
difficult in any enforcement effort. Especially when done across
