"Double jeopardy" refers to the act of the government in prosecuting a person criminally for committing the same crime more than once. It has no application to any civil judgment
That said, if you are married, and you have less than $75,000 of equity
in the property, then the creditor cannot sell your property to satisfy the liens. But, the liens are lawful, if you or your husband are named on title to the property and you or your husband are liable for the judgment under which the lien was filed.
A judgment lien expires after 10 years from the date that judgment was originally entered into the court record (not the date of recording the lien with the county clerk), unless the creditor renews. Most creditors do not renew, but it's possible, so at this point, your only recourse is probably to wait out the 10 years and see what happens.
