Child Support Judgment Search

Rely on our certified New Jersey child support judgment search. NJ State legislation requires attorneys in civil actions to ascertain whether their clients are child support judgment debtors before releasing a monetary award or settlement. To expedite this process and to facilitate compliance with the law, we offer Certified Child Support Judgment Searches.

Within 24-48 hours, we will issue a certified child support judgment search confirming whether a child support judgment exists against the name(s) requested. We have been offering searches of child support judgments since they were first filed by the Probation Division of the Superior Court.

Judgment Lien Search

A judgment search or judgment lien search (i.e., Upper Court Judgment Search) in New Jersey consists of a certified search of judgments, liens, and bankruptcies filed in the N.J. Superior Court, the U.S. District Court for N.J. and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for N.J. A judgment search also includes a search of child support judgments filed in New Jersey and CERCLA liens (also known as "Superfund" liens).

Judgment searches can be run for any time period up to twenty years, which is the statute of limitations for most judgment liens filed in New Jersey. Judgment liens docketed in the Law Division of the Superior Court extend as a lien on real estate throughout the jurisdiction of the Court, and therefore have "statewide general lien" status. Charles Jones has consistently set the standard and is the leading source for certified judgment searches since it first performed these searches in 1911.

Patriot Name Search

The Charles Jones Patriot Name Search is a Certified Search of lists published by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury (“OFAC”), consisting of the "Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons", the “Foreign Sanctions Evaders”, and the comprehensive “Consolidated List”. Charles Jones offers this search as an option when ordering a Statewide Judgment Lien Search or through a separate Service Selection on our online order entry and retrieval system.

Effective September 24, 2001, Executive Order 13224 was issued (as amended by Order 13268, and 13608) and requires anyone conducting a financial transaction to determine if the person(s) with whom they are doing business are listed on the Blocked Persons list. The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 requires similar checks and procedures. Later Executive Orders and sanctions have been imposed that require a check of other names that appear on OFAC’s “The Consolidated List” before transacting business.

The search also provides business general information on what to do if an individual name or entity appears on your results.
