    Default How Long Is A Judgement For Collection Good

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California. I have just been sent a letter of collection after 9 years or more for a debt I paid. Yet the court has no record of it and I cannot find my copy any longer. It has been over 7 years now, Can they still try to collect?

    If I am not mistaken, California judgments are good for 10 years and are renewable, I believe once so that would be 20 years if they renewed the judgment.

    I agree - Ca. judgment good for 20 yrs. if renewed.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
