However, if you are unable to make the debt payments, then your creditor may ask the court to garnish your wages or impose a judgment lien on your property. Once the judgment is paid, it will be reported on your credit report as "Paid Judgment".

A judgment remains on your credit report for 7 years or until it has been repaid whichever is shorter. Therefore, you should try your best to avoid getting a judgment against you.
