No. They do their "investigation" and if they find proof that the item does not belong there, then they will remove it. I had a judgement that was paid off, and I sent them a letter asking them to remove it. They did their "investigation" and it's still on there! So it may not always work.

You can have a credit dispute, if the agency reporting the bad judgment does not get back with the company disputing the judgment within 30 days, it HAS to be removed from your credit report. Example: I filed bankruptcy(?) on a auto repo. and the company did not take it off my credit report, I had my credit card company do a credit dispute, they did not respond within 30 days, and it was removed from my credit report.

Get a copy of your credit report from all 3 credit bureaus and file a dispute with each. They have a form you can fill out. You can get free credit reports from www.annualcreditreport.com

The credit bureaus and the original creditor that filed the judgment are the only ones that can remove it. You can contact the original creditor and try to negotiate removal of the judgment upon payment. You can also dispute the judgment to the credit bureaus and they have 30 days to verify the judgment or it must be removed from your credit report.

I have a civil judgment against me and the mobile home wasn't in my name. It is showing up on my credit report. How do I dispute it?

The judgment would of come through the court system. You would need to contact the court to know who to pay. You can dispute the listing to the credit bureaus, but that doesn't mean it will be removed. They have 30 days to verify the listing and if it isn't verified it must be removed.

Judgments are essentially lawsuits filed by a creditor that you owe money to. You generally can't get out of a judgment unless you go to court to fight it. You generally will have to pay a judgment willfully or by force to satisfy it. It will also show up on your credit report unless you dispute it to the credit bureaus. The credit bureaus have 30 days to verify it or it will be removed from your credit report.

According to the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act,yes. Judgements stay on for only seven years. If your judgment is on your report,and it has been over seven years, you are legally entitled to dispute it. Do this with all credit reporting agencies. They can provide you with the details to dispute an item. It will then come off. According to the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act,yes. Judgements stay on for only seven years.

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.

The procedure is the same as getting any other inaccurate or expired information, removed. Write a letter to the credit bureaus, dispute the judgment and request that your file be corrected. Send proof of your identity, address and social security number and request a complete credit report be sent to you when they have corrected the old entry. Good luck!

Judgments will stay on your credit report for up to 7 years whether paid or not. You can dispute your judgments to the credit bureaus by sending dispute letters to each of the credit bureaus. The credit bureaus will have to investigate the items and if they are paid they have a greater chance of being removed.

Yes, late payments can be removed from your credit report. Under the Fair Credit Reporting, any consumer can dispute anything on their credit report they believe to be erroneous or inaccurate. If you fall under this category, send a dispute letter to the credit bureau asking for verification on the account, they have 30 to days to verify it or it must be removed.

Yes, you need to dispute this with the three major credit reporting agencies. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE always save your paperwork for things like this. A little bit of diligence goes a long way. Send them a letter stating that you dispute it. Send whatever evidence that you have along with it. Usually judgments stay on your credit report from anywhere from 7-20 years. In this case you need to dispute it, after you send them the dispute with your evidence the three credit reporting agencies will go over your credit history and hopefully it will be removed. Good luck to you.

Here is the question, was the judgment placed under the bankruptcy? If so, you can dispute the items as part of the bankruptcy. If not, it is a separate entry and has the right to stand on it own.

Yes, it's possible to have them removed if you dispute them.

If it's not actually true, then you can dispute it with the reporting agency. If it is true, then you don't "get it removed." It will be removed after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

You can dispute bankruptcies and items included in bankruptcies the same as any other negative item on your credit report. You must submit a dispute letter to the credit bureaus stating why the item(s) are being disputed. The credit bureaus have 30 days to verify the items or it must be removed from your credit report.

A judgment will reduce you credit score. It takes about 7 years for an item on your credit report to be removed. You have to make a request for it to be remove from your credit after you 7 year period.

The judgment should be removed from your credit report 7 years from the date it was entered.

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.

It depends on what you mean. If you have erroneous information on your credit report, contact the credit reporting agency and tell them you want to file a dispute. If you're referring to a negative credit account or report that is in fact accurate, you usually cannot have that removed. Entries on your credit report are removed automatically after 7-10 years depending on what it is.
