A judge declares who wins the case and often contains reasons why the judge decided as he/she did.

If you do not register your judgment, you will have no legal process available to you to enforce the judgment. Neither can you share in any monies that Sheriff may collect from the judgment debtor on behalf of other registered judgment creditors. You must rely on the judgment debtor paying voluntarily.
