What Is A Judgment Lien?

A judgment is the formal decision of a court. It is impossible here to determine what the meaning of a judgment is without seeing it, but it is reasonable to assume that the court has decided that you owe a creditor some money. When the judgment is recorded, it can become a lien on real property that you own. If you have real property (such as a house) that is exempt as your homestead ($100,000 is equity in your home is exempt under Arizona law), you would want to file a Complaint to Avoid a Judgment Lien. If you do not have any property to which the lien may attach, the filing of the complaint would not have any effect.
