Judgment Lien Law
Michigan now has a new, effective and economical remedy to enforce judgments. MCL 600.2801 et seq. allows judgment creditors to file judgment liens in the county in which the debtor resides.
The Michigan Creditors Bar Association held a seminar on September 29, 2004 regarding the new Judgment Lien Law which became effective in Michigan as of September 1, 2004. The seminar was videotaped live.
