Will a court order lapse?

Will a court order lapse?

Will an order made in the County or High Court that one party do pay to another such-and-such amount of money eventually lapse (or become unenforceable)?

If so, when - and how?

Short answer - no.

But bankruptcy post judgment can lead to discharge of responsibility for the judgment debt.

Also, I think permission of the court is required to take some enforcement steps after 6 years.

However, an order of the court is not subject to any limitation period per se.
