To add to the helpful information my colleagues provided, a judgment creditor may if they choose renew a final judgment upon its 20 year expiration. It is completely at their discretion if they believe you will now be collectible. There’s no promise they won’t proceed with the renewal.
As for the exemption, the courts will likely set a hearing. If not, find out the judge that is assigned to your case and try to reach out to their assistant to set a court date.
This response is not intended to be legal advice and is offered as general educational information only and should not be relied upon by any individual as legal advice. For legal advice you should employ the services of a qualified experienced lawyer depending on the nature of your question in the jurisdiction where your matter is or will be pending. The hiring of an attorney is a serious matter and you should not merely rely upon advertisement nor casual inquiry for such.
You can usually search the County Clerk of Court records online to check the status of the case. If you have filed for an exemption and cannot find it online you should contact the Clerk of Court by phone to check on the status.
You can find your case on the Polk County Clerk of Court website.
Just because I answer your question does not mean that I am your lawyer, or that you should take action based on my answer. I am not your lawyer. I can give you my best guess based on the facts as you present them in your question. Any questions that I ask in my response are rhetorical, which means that I do not want you to answer my questions.
