I have just been notified that their is an open judgment

I have just been notified that their is an open judgment against me from back in 2013 while I was attending college. The situation occurred while I was out of town, I had left rent money for a roommate to turn in who then forgot on the 1st. I returned home to find an eviction notice on my door as well as a 5 day old 5 day notice. I paid my balance that morning at the front office but had been notified that court proceedings had happened that morning and an open judgment has already been placed against me. I know it is incorrect saying its open when I paid in full the same day and I need to get that updated to satisfied but is it ok for them to have held court without me given the fact I never personally received any notice that anything was wrong? Don't I need to be served?JA: Does this involve a written or oral agreement? Is it a month-to-month lease or fixed term?Customer: it was a 12 month leaseJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: an open judgmentJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I believe thats everything

Thank you. Back in 2013 I won a small claims against my Ex

thank you. Back in 2013 I won a small claims against my Ex Husband for unpaid child care/medical etc. At the time he was in the middle of filing bankruptcy. I found out that it was dismissed last October. So now i can go after him for the $. I am trying to do this myself obviously. I got the Garnishment process step-by-step from the courthouse today. My question, do I need to do the first step of sending him a demand letter to pay? I hope that made sense.JA: What state are you in? And has anything been officially filed? You have to pay for your first question. If you sign up for a membership, there is a free trial for questions after that. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: WashingtonJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nothing filed as far as going after him for the money he owes. The last thing was the Order on Show Cause re Contempt/Judgment.
