You can go to the clerks offiice and check the status. You will need photo identification. You can also try ecourts online to see if a judgment has been signed.

You can check the status on the Courts "E-Courts" website at http://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/webcivil/ecourtsMain. You may also go down to the clerk's office to review the actual paperwork.
