Recent Judgment Debtor questions

I currently live in the state of Colorado where a judgment

I currently live in the state of Colorado where a judgment was issued against me on July 17, 2007. I did initiate payments towards this judgment shortly after that date. I have been making payments towards the judgment up through last month. It is approaching 10 years since this judgment has been issued against me, and the collection agency recently notified me of their intent to revive this judgment in Court. My understanding is that a judgment in the state of Colorado lasts for 20 years, and that judgment liens only last six years. However, a judgment lien may be revived prior to the expiration of the six-year period by reviving the judgment. This six year time frame has already expired, however, I have been making monthly payments towards this judgment beyond this six-year time frame, and as recent as last month. I am trying to understand if the collection agency can revive the judgment even though the six-year time frame has expired and the fact that I have been making payments towards this judgment as recent as last month. Given this information, can the collection agency legally get the judgment lien revived, and if not, how could the remaining 10-years of the expiration of the judgment be used against me? I am trying to understand my legal rights under this situation. Please advise me on my legal rights in this situation in the state of Colorado. Thank you.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, I just received a copy of the motion to revive the judgment and that I have 7 days left to respond as to why I believe the judgment should not be revived. Given the background that I provided to you earlier, can you advise me as to my legal rights?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have provided all of the information.
