What is a PJC Durham NC?

What is a PJC? Well, let’s start at the beginning:

PJC stands for Prayer for Judgment Continued. Still isn’t clear, though, right? So one word at a time…

Prayer = request
Judgment = the decision of the court
Continued = postponed

So a PJC is a request that the decision of the court be postponed. That’s easy enough. But what does that do for you? Well, to be more specific it’s a request that the judge/court indefinitely (in most cases) postpone a judgment, meaning it “happens” but it is never technically entered and therefore doesn’t count against you. But as always, it’s not as simple as that.
For insurance point purposes, you only get ONE PJC per HOUSEHOLD for a three year period. For DMV purposes, you only get TWO PJCs per PERSON for a five year period.
Still not clear? That’s exactly why you shouldn’t use it. Call me for more details and I’ll see what I can do to help.
