When you go past due on a debt and collection efforts fail, the issue is turned over to a lawyer. The attorney files a lawsuit and obtains a judgment against you to get you to make payments. This becomes public record and shows up on background checks and your credit report.
The judgment is considered a lien against your property. This means any real estate you own within the state the judgment was filed.
