Voidable Judgment Law and Legal Definition

Voidable judgment refers to a judgment that seems to be valid but is defective in some material way. However, voidable judgment is rendered by a court having judgment. Voidable judgment is also considered a irregular or erroneous judgment. A voidable judgment is one that is facially valid and requires proof in order to demonstrate its lack of validity. The appropriate manner for challenging a voidable judgment is through a petition for post-conviction relief.[George W. Kennedy Constr. Co. v. Industrial Com., 152 Ill. App. 3d 114 (Ill. App. Ct. 2d Dist. 1987)].
