How is a civil judgment entered on a credit report?

Credit bureaus contract agencies to search public records. The judgment is then reported to the credit bureau and the notation is placed in the file of the judgment debtor. False/mistaken judgment entries on credit reports are not uncommon and is a major reason why consumer's should check their report on a regular basis. A civil judgment is entered on a credit report 15 to 30 days after a court proceeding. If the judgment is in fact true in nature, you can negotiate with the creditor to pay them on different terms to keep the judgment off. If the judgment is not yours, you will need to find the state and county in which they were filed and dispute this information with all three credit bureaus.

Can a civil judgment be removed from credit report?

AnswerIf it was true and accurate, no. maybeThat is often state dependant, but you should be able to have it removed once the debt is paid. If it is not paid yet, it is considered outstanding debt, and will stay on your credit report. No a valid judgment will remain 7 years or indefinitely if the judgment creditor chooses to renew it.If a judgment is paid or settled the entry will reflect such, but the judgment will still remain on the CR for a minimum of 7 years.YesOnly the court or the credit bureaus can remove judgments on your credit report. You can dispute anything on your credit report to the credit bureaus that you believe to be inaccurate or erroneous.
