Docketing a Judgment for Collection

Docketing a judgment means putting the judgment on the formal record of the court. When that occurs, the amount of the judgment becomes a formal "lien" against the real estate the debtor owns in that county for a period of ten years and allows you to take actions to enforce the judgment.

The Waukesha County Civil Court Court will accept a letter (including your case number) requesting that the judgment be docketed, or, if you prefer, you may use the instructions and form below to docket the judgment.

Below you will find basic instructions for handling your court matter and most of the forms you will need to get from the beginning to the end of the process. You have the option to:

  • Print the forms in PDF or
  • Complete the Word Fillable forms on-line

If a form is listed but not linked to a PDF or Word document, you must obtain that form from the office in which your matter is being handled.

Please keep in mind that not all forms are due at the same time. Review the Instructions provided to determine in what order to complete each form and other tasks required.

Hint: ONLY COMPLETE THE TASKS IN THE ORDER THEY ARE LISTED - Read ahead, but do not work ahead.
