Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
When an out of state judgment is domesticated in another state---where the debtor lives or has assets, that new state will issue a judgment based on the judgment from the other state.
The statute of limitations for the life of the judgment is based on state law, and so if the original judgment was in one state and the judgment was brought in and domesticated in CO, then the CO judgment issued by the court would be valid for 20 years---the same as a judgment issued in IN. And in both CO and IN, a judgment may be renewed for an additional 20 years.
