Which is worse Charge off or judgment?

Depends how you look at it. They hurt your credit score the same if they are on your credit report. But they can be collected differently. If someone gets a judgment against you they can garnish your wages and take your tax refund. A charged off account is usually sent to collections and could possible be turned into a judgment. Either way, you still owe debt on both and they hurt your credit the same.

What if you paid a judgment is it on your credit?

Most likely. Judgments are among the legal items which can be reflected on an individual's credit report. The others are tax liens, foreclosures and bankruptcies. The status (paid or unpaid) is beside the point with legal items. What is needed is for the judgment to have its' proper "disposition". This would be a Satisfaction of Judgment or an Order to Vacate Judgment (dismissal). The disposition needs to be granted in the same jurisdiction as the original judgment and be recorded. You could then forward a certified copy to all three credit bureaus in order for the item to be properly reflected. The impact to your credit is severe, but having a disposition is necessary to prevent the legal item from stopping future borrowing efforts.

Can a credit card company have a lawyer put a lien on a home?

Lawyers do not have the authority to place liens on property. The creditor would need to sue you in court and win a judgment. It could then request a judgment lien that could be recorded in the land records. You could not sell or mortgage your property until the lien is paid off. The amount would continue to grow since the judgment creditor is entitled to interest and costs.

Can a collection agency have you arrested and sue you for the debt if you are unemployed and on Social Security Disability?

You cannot be arrested for failing to pay a debt. The collection could sue you, but the judgment would be nearly impossible to enforce. Your disability benefits cannot be taken or garnished to enforce the judgment. The most they could do is put the judgment on your credit rating, put a lien on your property and perhaps have some of your nonexempt property taken and sold to pay toward the judgment.

What is likely to happen if you have not paid credit card companies for a few months but you have moved and no one knows where you now liveand if you was to go on holiday abroad would you be arrested?

How long does a judgment stay on your credit report in florida?

Depends on how it was filed, but the judgment itself is valid a minimum of 5 years once it is awarded. Details can be found at The length of time a judgment may show on your credit report is established by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, a federal law. FCRA 15 USC 1681c, Sec. 605, reads: "(a) Information excluded from consumer reports...(2) civil judgments...that from date of entry, antedate the report by more than seven years or until the governing statute of limiations has expired, whichever is the longer period." Certain states allow a judgment to be renewed. In Florida, a judgment is valid for 20 yeas, but must be re-recorded after the first 10 years. The re-recording could possibly trigger the judgment to appear on a consumers credit report.

Otherwise, the judgment could be attached to you new car, and it too would be repossessed. 2. After a repossession, you may find it hard to get financing for a vehicle.

How many points does a traffic ticket lower your credit score?

Traffic citations do not affect your credit score. Traffic citations for moving violations that result in a conviction for that offense (in other words, you don't contest the ticket) will affect your driving record and often can affect your insurance costs if your insurance company reviews your driving record. Your credit score is based on credit items where money was extended to you with a promise of repayment, such as credit cards, mortgage loans, and auto loans. If you do not pay a court debt and a judgment or collection item is reported against you it is feasible that it could eventually show on your credit report, although this may not be common.
