Can the revival of a judgment be denied?

Question Details:

Can the revival of a judgment ever be denied? A judgment was entered for attorney's fees in 2002 for a custody case. The attorney to receive the award of fees used my new spouse's income in calculating the award. She initially withdrew any objection to our petition for relief which is still pending. Now after 7 years, she is wanting to collect but she has not revived the judgment. Can she collect if she has not filed to revive the judgment? Also, can the revival be denied since this order should not have been entered and there was no hearing on fees?
