Electronically or eRecording Abstract of Judgment – Instructions

 

 

 

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Complete the Form

To place a judgment lien against real property, you must complete an Abstract of Judgment.

Step 2: Accompanying Document(s)

You may also need to include a memorandum of costs if you incurred additional costs.

Step 3: File Your Documents

File the following items with the court: Check your court for filing options. Some courts mandate eFiling.

If the court you are trying to file with is a Mandatory eFiling Court, you will need to place a County Recording Order.

If the court you are trying to file in does not provide eFiling, you will need to prepare the following.

• Abstract of Judgment (original + 2 copies)
• Memorandum of Costs After Judgment (original + 2 copies), if applicable
• The filing fee (currently $40, current fees at
• Self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage to return the documents to you.
File your documents at the filing window, or in dropbox. The clerk will return the original
abstract of judgment to you with the court’s seal on it. This may take several weeks.

Step 4: Record the Abstract of Judgment

You will need to record your abstract of judgment in each county where the judgment debtor owns
the property. You need only one abstract of judgment per county, even if the debtor owns multiple
properties. You may record an abstract of judgment even if the judgment debtor does not currently
own property; this will allow a lien to be placed against any property the debtor may acquire in the
future. When using the CountrywideProcess.com portal to eRecord, please ensure your documents are scanned in black and white, in 300 DPI, and have a 1/2 margin around the document in order to avoid rejections. Once the Abstract of Judgment is recorded, the County Recorder will return the recorded Abstract of Judgment electronically.

Step 5: What Happens Next?

The county recorder will provide notice to the debtor that you have recorded the abstract of judgment.
You will not be paid automatically, but if the debtor refinances or sells the property, you may get paid
your money with interest.

The lien created by the recorded Abstract of Judgment continues for 10 years from the date of entry of the money judgment and can be renewed for additional 10-year periods, until the judgment is satisfied. When you need to renew your Abstract of Judgment, you will need to prepare new Abstract of Judgment form with the updated amount owed to you (including any accumulated interest), and you will need to record it in the appropriate county or counties.

WHAT ARE FAMILY LAW CASES?

As e-filing or electronic filing of specifically mentioned documents related to family law cases has been made mandatory by the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles that went into effect from November 15, 2021, litigants must have a knowledge of what actually counts as family law cases and the documents that need to be mandatorily filed.

Family law covers a vast area of family relations and related concerns. Family laws regulate laws regarding marriage, divorce, illegitimacy, inheritance, guardianship, adoption, treatment of children and related matters. It even concerns the economic matters related to these relations. Family laws deal with marriage law, marriage license, prenuptial agreements, divorce requirements, community property laws, and child support guidelines.

If you have no knowledge regarding the functioning and reach of these laws, it becomes really important to hire a Family Law Attorney, especially if it is a divorce case, child custody matter and these types of cases are the ones that would require you to have a considerable knowledge of the law.

If you are going through a family law case, the emotions might take the best of you and hence, hiring an attorney that can talk your case and make the necessary negotiations on your part becomes a dominant factor. Countrywide Process offers experienced, certified and knowledgeable attorneys who provide unmatchable assistance to the litigants. EFSPs at Countrywide process offers the best e-filing services and are handling the recent mandatory e-filing of the documents related to family law cases.

Serve your Tenant when Eviction Moratoriums Ends October, 2021 or does it?

 

Eviction Service California – Starting @ $85.00

The End of the Eviction Moratorium Is a Wake-Up Call for Democratic Lawmakers

Recent Supreme Court rulings have highlighted the party’s staggering legislative impotence.

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have a heated discussion on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

DREW ANGERER/GETTY IMAGES

Last week’s Supreme Court ruling to end the federal moratorium on evictions was perhaps a canary in the coal mine for what would transpire a week later, with the high court’s decision not to prevent Texas’s treacherous new anti-abortion law from going into effect. The court’s conservative majority’s move to curtail the moratorium, a cornerstone of the pandemic relief effort, once again dispensed a status quo–altering ruling off their so-called “shadow docket,” over the dissent of the liberal trio. The end of the federal eviction moratorium will precipitate a crisis that threatens to displace 3.5 million households.

The Roberts court’s choice to let Texas’s abortion law go into effect underscores the indecencies of a right-wing judiciary. But it bears mention that the end of the eviction moratorium is not really the Supreme Court’s fault. The blame for that falls squarely on the Democratic-controlled Congress. Amid a litany of crises, the Supreme Court’s recent action (and inaction) provides a timely gut check on the Democrats’ overall governing and reelection strategy.

It’s actually remarkable that the moratorium stood for as long as it did. As The New Republic’s Matt Ford explained last month, the authority that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cited as the basis of the moratorium was flimsy at best, relying on an extremely generous reading of a single clause in the Public Health Service Act of 1944. That it managed to coax an initially empathetic ruling from the conservative Supreme Court, albeit temporarily, is a minor miracle.

At the time, Justice Brett Kavanaugh made it clear that the moratorium was not long for this world: “If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue,” Kavanaugh wrote, “Congress must specifically authorize it.” Last week’s shadow docket decision reaffirmed this: “If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue, Congress must specifically authorize it,” it read.

Despite such clear guidance for the action Congress needed to take, the White House responded to the Covid housing crisis by pointing toward figures far from Capitol Hill as the solution to the problem. On August 26, White House press secretary Jen Psaki ran down a wide-ranging list of people who needed to step up and help. Members of Congress were conspicuously absent from the request: “President Biden is once again calling on all entities that can prevent evictions—from cities and states to local courts, landlords, Cabinet agencies—to urgently act to prevent evictions.”

A few days later, Psaki returned to the lectern to declare, “Attorney General Merrick Garland is calling on the entire legal community to take immediate action to help prevent unnecessary evictions during this public health emergency.” This vague and nonsensical call to the entire legal community (whatever that means) came before the White House called on any legislators to do anything to stop people from losing their homes unnecessarily. (The White House did not explain what makes an eviction “necessary” or “unnecessary.”)

It’s all a rather farcical way of coming to grips with reality: Between the Democrats who are bankrolled by the National Association of Realtors and those who favor maintaining the filibuster over passing an agenda, there’s not enough Democratic support to save vulnerable Americans from losing their homes. Had Democrats been more willing to put their control of Congress to better use, they could have actually helped out their constituents in this time of crisis, rather than doing nothing.

The Democrats’ midterm strategy is, thus far, baffling. The party wants to brag about a legislative agenda that’s mostly blocked by the Senate filibuster. They need their voters to “out-organize” a titanically well-funded Republican movement to suppress the vote, all while fighting for their reproductive rights and/or being pushed out of their homes.

There’s a winning message to be had, nevertheless. Democrats can boast a strong platform of popular policies that might ameliorate some of America’s biggest problems, and can make a riveting case that the Republican Party is as cruelilliberal, and irresponsible as ever. But these midterm arguments are undercut by the Democrats’ refusal to act on them—to use the power they have in the little time left to make the case that they should continue to hold power.

This week, as Texas’s draconian new abortion law went into effect across the Lone Star State, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed on Twitter, “This fight is only just beginning.” That every “fight” is perpetually on the verge of getting started without Democrats ever entering the ring is precisely the problem.
