If your name is on the judgment, you cannot remove it and it will be on your credit report as unpaid until it is satisfied (aka paid). If you have a statement regarding the judgment in your divorce, you may have some success in contacting the credit reporting companies and sending them the information they require. Mind you, it may take some time and you'll probably have to follow up several times to be certain that they have taken care of the issue. If it is a real problem in what you would like to do, such as borrowing money, and nothing else will work, consider paying it off yourself by going to the court that issued the judgment and obtaining the necessary documents. If you get lucky, the judgment will have already been paid and just not reported to the credit reporting companies.
Yes, definitely.

Take them to court.
Not much other than having the collection marked from unpaid to paid. If you are paying off credit collection companies, negotiate to get a letter from them telling you that the amount you are paying is the balance as agreed and that they will remove it from your credit report. Do not pay until you get that letter. If you pay without doing that, it will stay on your credit report for about 3 years depending on when the collection was first put on your credit report. The fact that you paid it already just says on your credit report that instead of unpaid the collection is marked as paid. If you already paid either repair your credit or get a reputable firm in the BBB who has a money-back guaranteed policy.
