Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I will try to assist with your question tonight. First though, I need clarification of: 1) was the judgment for support? 2) have you ever had a title search done on the real estate in question? It will take me a little time to look up the Oregon statute I'm on Eastern time, so I might not get back to you until tomorrow morning.
Good morning. I was able to find out a few things about the Oregon judgment lien statute, which is a little unusual. In most states, a judgment against an individual is automatically a lien against any property owned by that individual in the county were the judgment was entered. Under Oregon procedure, ORS 18.150, the court administrator must determine whether the judgment constitutes a judgment lien, and then file a report of that, with copies sent to the parties. I was able to find that a judgment lien is good for 10 years. ORS 12.070. I hope that you will enter a positive rating for my assistance here by clicking on 3, 4, or 5.
