My husbands business failed and he has several judgments filed

Resolved Question:

My husband's business failed and he has several judgments filed against him individually in the county where we have our home mortgage. How do we find out if these judgments effect the house property, especially if the house was sold.

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.
