Extension of judgment lien of spousal support award

(1) If a judgment that is entered on or after January 1, 2004, includes a spousal support award, a judgment creditor may file a certificate of extension under ORS 18.182 (Extension of judgment remedies) at any time more than 15 years after the entry of the judgment that first establishes the support obligation and before the judgment lien for the spousal support award portion of a judgment expires under ORS 18.180 (Expiration of judgment remedies in circuit court) (6)(b). If a certificate of extension is filed under this subsection:

(a) The judgment lien for the spousal support award portion of the judgment expires 10 years after the certificate of extension is filed; and

(b) Any installment arrearage lien that arises under the judgment, whether before or after the filing of the certificate, expires 10 years after the installment comes due and is not paid or when the judgment lien for the spousal support award portion of the judgment expires under paragraph (a) of this subsection, whichever is first.

(2) Notwithstanding ORS 18.182 (Extension of judgment remedies) (5), certificates of extension under ORS 18.182 (Extension of judgment remedies) may continue to be filed in the manner provided by subsection (1) of this section and with like effect for as long as the judgment lien for the spousal support award portion of a judgment has not expired and any installments remain to be paid under the judgment.
