The Process Creditors Need to Go Through to Renew a Judgment in California

- Filing an application to renew the judgment with the court. This must be done prior to the expiration of the original judgment.
- Providing notice to the debtor of the renewal of judgment. This can be done by mailing a copy of the motion to the debtor’s correct address.
- There will be no hearing on the application to renew judgment. The court clerk will enter the renewal if the creditor’s documents appear complete..
- When renewal of judgment is granted, the creditor will have an additional 10 years to collect on the judgment.
- If you wish to fight renewal of judgment, you must file a motion to vacate the renewal within 30 days of receipt notice of renewal.

I am writing this review on behalf of my father, who received the services. He is elderly, has health concerns, and was serviced for a lawsuit and had no idea what to do. We reached out to The Fullman Firm and Alec explained everything in detail. Alec was so professional and helped relieve the stress of being sued by going over each step and establishing us with an attorney. Sam was the attorney assigned to our case. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Within 2 weeks of hiring them, the debt of almost 10k, was totally eliminated and the case was closed. It really felt good to have this off our plate. It was very stressful not knowing what to do or what to expect. Thank you Fullman Firm for your help. If you ever need this service please call the Fullman Firm they ensure you are connected with a great attorney and paralegal to help you with your case.
