I received your answer about judgments in Ohio. I already knew and already wrote you I knew about extensions, thus your answer was not acceptable. I told you I knew that before I asked the question. My question is: "If no effort is made to collect on the judgment, does it automatically expire (or becomes void) after x number of years?"
I asked my attorney
Yes, it does automatically expire, that is what the 5 years means. After that 5 years if they did not renew the judgment, it expires automatically. I am sorry if you did not understand that from my previous post.

PLEASE NOTE WELL, LEGAL ANSWERS TAKE MORE THAN “MINUTES” TO PUT TOGETHER AS WE ARE DEALING WITH LAWS OF 50 STATES PLUS FEDERAL LAWS, AS WELL AS DEALING WITH OTHER CUSTOMERS, SO PLEASE BE PATIENT IT WILL BE MORE THAN “MINUTES” IN SOME CASES BEFORE YOU GET A RESPONSE, BUT BE ASSURED YOU ARE NOT BEING IGNORED.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.

Once again, I write: If no effort to collect on a judgement is made, even though the judgment is renewed every five years, is there ever a time when the judgment is no longer valid? If you tell me one more time, "Yes, that is what the five year renewal is for", I will cancel my subscription to justanswer.com
I am sorry that you had to choose to give negative feedback and the fact you have failed to pay for any of your 4 questions means I must now opt out and wish you the best and open this up to any other expert who may wish to assist you. You have gotten your answer which you just refuse to accept as the correct answer. Good luck to you and best wishes.
Relist: Answer quality.Duuuhhhh... My question was not answered. If no effort is ever made to collect on judgment, even though the judgment is renewed every five years, is there ever a time when the judgment is no longer valid? I say again, even though the judgment is renewed every five years, if no effort is made to collect and money is not paid, does the judgment ever become invalid?
NO. The effort, or lack thereof to collect the judgment has nothing to do with its validity. As long as the judgment is renewed (usually by obtaining a new
judgment) before it expires, whether they try to collect it or not, it will remain valid.
