Demand that the company that made the error correct the problem. They should be able to contact the credit bureaus and take care of the appropriate paperwork. Mail the letters to the three credit agencies along with an explanation of what you want done and why. * The credit bureau(s) will not take any action until the judgment has been removed from the official court records. The debtor will need to contact the clerk or court administrator of the court where the judgment was recorded to obtain the proper procedures necessary for having the judgment lifted. Legal counsel may be needed, depending on the circumstances of the entering and/or execution of the judgment writ in question.
