There is a 10 day window in which an appeal may be filed; that statute is here:

https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title8.01/chapter3/section8.01-129/

Some appellate forms are here:

Thank You,Can a judgment of lien be put on my bank account with out sending me a notification for court. Meaning can they send me to court but don't tell me and then try to take all my money out of my account?
Bankruptcy Lawyer: legalg, Attorney replied 1 month ago

The defendant would have notice of the judgment itself; the court may simultaneously issue a writ of fieri facias and the sheriff may sieze the property without further notice.

The writ creates an automatic lien; here is that statute:

I read the link but don't understand it. Is it worth me getting a lower to help me fight a against them taking all the money out of my account? Or is this a situation were when I appeal I can just make the monthly payments?
Bankruptcy Lawyer: legalg, Attorney replied 1 month ago

Actually many judgment creditors will work out a payment plan so that may be explored.

There are certain exemptions available such as Social security income, unemployment income, etc;

that statute is here:

https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title8.01/chapter18/section8.01-512.4/

So if the account is not exempt and the underlying debt is valid and the judgment cannot be vacated generally one will not contest it.

If this account was on my credit reports and then was taken off my credit report. Do I still owe the lawyer/ company?
Bankruptcy Lawyer: legalg, Attorney replied 1 month ago

If it has been removed from the credit report that means that 7 years has passed, or that the account has been made current, or that the creditor for some reason stopped reporting it.

A judgment remains valid for 10 years and can be renewed;

the creditor can still collect if the judgment is valid whether or not it appears on one's report.
