Northern Ireland

A judgment can be issued in a county/high court or at the Civil Processing Centre if you fail to repay the money you owe and the applicant has taken court action.

The Northern Ireland Register contains details of all undefended default, small claims and high court judgments.

Judgments are shown as either satisfied or unsatisfied on the Register. Satisfied means the judgment has been paid in full, unsatisfied means it has not.  Judgments stay on the register for six years unless set-aside/cancelled.

The information appearing on the Register is as follows:

  • court name and case number 
  • name and address of the defendant
  • date and amount of judgment (including costs)
  • details of ‘satisfaction’ once Registry Trust has been provided with proof of payment and the search fee
