SATISFACTION OF JUDGMENT

The formal acknowledgement in the court records that a judgment is no longer owed or executable.  When a judgment has been fully paid, or the parties otherwise agree that a judgment may be deemed satisfied, a judgment creditor may file a satisfaction of judgment in the court.  If a judgment is fully satisfied, but the judgment creditor cannot or will not file a satisfaction of judgment, an interested party can request the court enter a satisfaction of judgment in the case.  Once satisfied, a judgment no longer has the power to support garnishments, attachments, liens or other executions.
