The public computer terminals in the Court Administration File Room may be used to access information on outstanding judgments, which include money owed by debtors to creditors. Many agencies such as abstract companies, credit bureaus, etc. collect judgment information from the public files.
The life span of a judgment is 10 years or until it has been paid and a “satisfaction” document is filed with Court Administration. You may also access court records using the Internet by following the online instructions.
Judgment Search Certificate Information
Judgment searches are not conducted via the telephone. Judgment searches may be requested in person at the Judgment counter in Anoka County Court Administration during regular business hours or by mail when accompanied by a prepaid fee for each search certificate requested. That means a fee will be charged per name or per any variation of the name. The goal is to process these judgment search requests within 24 hours.
