NRS 68.030  Execution may issue on entry of judgment on docket of justice of the peace.  From the time of entry of judgment on the docket of the justice of the peace, execution may be issued thereon by the justice of the peace to the sheriff of any county in the State, in the same manner and with like effect as if issued on a judgment of the district court.

[1911 CPA 839; RL 5781; NCL 9328](NRS A 1969, 183)

NRS 68.040  Judgment becomes lien when abstract recorded with county recorder.  A judgment rendered in a justice court creates no lien upon any lands of the defendant, unless an abstract is recorded in the office of the county recorder of the county in which the lands are situated. When so recorded and from the time of the recording, the judgment becomes a lien upon all the real property of the judgment debtor, not exempt from execution, in the county, owned by the judgment debtor at the time, or which the judgment debtor acquires before the lien expires. The lien continues for 6 years, unless the judgment is previously satisfied.

NRS 68.050  Judgments by confession.  Judgments upon confession may be entered up in any justice court specified in the confession.
