It's usually 7 years from the date filed for the judgements. However keep in mind that judgment has much longer enforcement period than the length of time it can be on your credit reports and it can be renewed. It's also matter of public records, unless you have it vacated/expunged/sealed,  it will be on the public record for much much longer than 7 years. I still can see mine public record entries from 1996.
