An outstanding judgment is a court order that gives a creditor the legal right to collect from a debtor. As court judgments are a matter of public record, a creditor can report the judgment on the debtor's credit reports. An example of a judgment placed on a credit report would be a judgment for eviction. This judgment will remain on the credit report for seven years from the filing date.

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.
