Judgment debts

Judgment debts

This section explains what a judgment debt is and the options that are available to your client in the event that they become aware of a judgment debt. It also sets out the potential enforcement measures a creditor can take if judgment is obtained against your client.

Importantly, the limitation period for judgment debts is 15 years. However, judgment cannot be enforced against your client if he or she is judgment proof.
