Docket Judgment (by Kate [NJ]) Posted on: Jan 9, 2018 4:39 AM

Hi All,

I have never read anything about docketing a judgment on this website, so I want to send out a REMINDER TO DO THIS ASAP after receiving a default judgment on a collection suit in court.

My bottom hurts from kicking myself.

I was recently awarded a collection suit judgment by default, but was unable to docket it it right away. In the meantime, the evicted tenant won a separate lawsuit, and since I was not one of her listed creditors (a debt to satisfy) prior to her funds being released to her, she got the money and I did not.

I doubt the old tenant listed any of the debts, I have not heard the word -docketed- but this may be state specific, have you been to your clerks office to learn what methods they have to collect? here in my big city they do a lot based on what info you give them, and the whole cost of filing is added automatically, this extra costs 30bux in addition to the 135 filing eviction.

I too have never heard of this procedure. What is it? --71.75.xx.xx

Docketing is recording a judgment. New Jersey and Minnesota require that you or your lawyer does it. Apparently in other states the judge does it for you!
