Rules and Forms | Civil Practice and Procedure: Enforcement of Judgment Form Revisions (Action Required)

Summary

Summary

The Civil and Small Claims Advisory Committee recommends changes to two forms related to renewals of judgments, effective January 1, 2023, to implement statutory changes in Senate Bill 1200 (Stats. 2022, ch. 883). In relevant part, this bill provides that a judgment creditor may only renew the period of enforceability of a money judgment one time, for 5 years--rather than multiple times, for 10 years each--where the judgment is on a claim against a natural person (1) related to medical expenses if the principal amount of the money judgment remaining unsatisfied is under $200,000, or (2) related to personal debt if the principal amount of the money judgment remaining unsatisfied is under $50,000.

The proposed revisions address these statutory changes. Because the council forms will not conform with the law as of January 1 if not revised, the committee is recommending that the forms be approved by that date, prior to public comment, and be circulated later.
