Money Judgment Searches


To Obtain a Money Judgment by Mail, If You Do Not Have the Index Number or the Date Judgment Was Entered

A search will have to be conducted. The fee for a search and a certificate recording the result of the search, called a "Find on File" or "Fail to Find" certificate, is $10. This fee covers a two-year search. If more years need to be searched, an additional $5 is required for every additional two years or portion thereof. There is a charge of $.65 per page with a minimum charge of $1.50 for copying the documents. If you desire a certified copy, there is an additional charge of $8. Please send separate bank or postal money orders for each two-year search period. We will return any bank or postal money orders that were not used.

We will notify you of the exact fee. In your request, you will need to list the names of the parties against whom the judgment was entered. Please note if you are obtaining a copy of a judgment in order to clear your credit, a certified copy is not required. All fees are payable to the Kings County Clerk by bank or postal money order, certified check, or NYS attorney's check. No personal checks will be accepted.
