Frequently Asked Questions and Instructions
What is a Warrant to
A Warrant to Satisfy Judgment, also known as a Warrant of Satisfaction of Judgment,
(“WOS”) is a legal document that, when properly filed with the Clerk of the Superior Court
(“Clerk”), will close the judgment on the Superior Court Civil Judgment and Order Docket.
The filed WOS serves as proof that the judgment has been fully satisfied and is no longer a
lien on the debtor’s property.
