RENEWING A JUDGMENT UPDATED
May 24, 2011 § 4 Comments
I posted here about the then-new procedure for renewing a judgment that went into effect in 2010. That provision clarified some old statutory provisions that allowed for renewal of a judgment, but did not specify a procedure.
Effective July 1, 2011, MCA § 15-1-43 is amended to apply only to judgments or decrees that have not yet expired. The attorney applying to renew the judgment must certify that the judgment has not expired when making the application to renew the existing judgment.
