Any judgment on file serves as a lien against all of his property - including your house. Also, if you were to sell your house, the mortgage would be paid off first and any money left over would be payable to the creditors with judgments. Who gets paid depends on the order in which the judgments were filed.
Colorado judgments are collectible as follows:
District Court Judgment - 20 years
County Court Judgment - 6 years
