A judgment becomes a lien on the real estate of the judgment debtor only after a Statement of Judgment made by the judgment creditor or attorney, on the form prescribed by the Administrative Director of the Courts, is filed in the County Clerk's office of that county.
Executions are filed to continue a judgment. They must make reference to the original judgment filing. There is no charge to file an execution in Cleveland County if the judgment was awarded through a Cleveland County court.
The release must be a certified copy from the Court Clerk's office. It must include the original judgment number that it is releasing.
