I live in Ohio and won a small claims case in the Oberlin Municipal court on April 4, of 2006 and was wondering how long I have to collect on the judgement. I have been unable to find the person I won against, and was wondering if there is some way I can extend the amount of time I have to collect. Thank You.

There are no time limits on collecting a debt. There are limits on placing leins and extending judgment leins, but sounds like you have a simple judgment against this person, so that judgment doesn't expire. Once you find this person let me know so I can guide you thru garnishment and bank sweep to collect.
