The removal of a judgment from a CR does not mean it is not valid and collectible. Judgments are awarded for a 5-20 years duration and most are renewable. In the majority of cases they will remain valid until they are paid in full or a settlement is made. A judgment that is renewed can be reentered on a CR.
A foreclosure will be expunged from a person's credit report after seven years have expired from the time the foreclosure was reported. Valid information on a credit report cannot be removed until the required time limit for reportage has expired.
Normally for a judgment to be withdrawn from your credit report, it is supposed to be cleared after 7 years. A judgment remains on a credit report for seven years from the time it is entered. Many judgments are renewable and can therefore be reentered making it possible for them to stay on the public records portion of a CR for an undetermined amount of time. The time limit for a bankruptcy entry to remain on a CR is ten years from the date of discharge or in some instances a dismissal. Valid information that is negative cannot be removed until the time limit has expired. In most cases positive information will become a permanent part of a person's credit history.
If a judgment goes in the bankruptcy, it can be removed. The person who the judgment was for, has the right to request that it still be paid. In most Chapter 7 situations, the judge will decide in favor of the debtor.
Depending on the state you live in, judgments can be renewed. If the person entitled to the judgment doesn't try to collect or renew, when the judgment expires, you should probably contact your court clerk to find out how to get it removed from all records.
The person whose property is encumbered will need to pay the judgment lien or file a lawsuit requesting the lien be removed valid proof that the lien is without merit will need to be presented at the hearing.
A person's wages can not be garnished unless a judgment is obtained in court against that person. People get sued all the time for credit card debt. Once the credit card company gets a judgment, then they can garnish wages.
An extremely negative effect. A judgment is very damaging to a person's credit. Especially if it is in the form of a garnishment or real property lien.
Placing JudgmentsFirst you need to win the judgment in court proceedings. Then with that paperwork, you can contact the credit reporting agency. With that judgment, you can also do a search of the person's assets (through the internet) and put a lien on the assets.Individuals do not report judgment awards to credit reporting bureaus that is done by independent agencies contracted by the credit bureaus.A judgment cannot be used to access a person's financial and personal information, that is done via discovery documents issued before the judgment is entered against the debtor/defendant.
By "not yours" I assume the debt or whatever wasn't charged by you, or whatever...if you didn't file an answer to the initial lawsuit you are screwed unless you can prove fraud to the person that filed the suit...if you can, then they can probably have the judgment released, or dismiss the case without prejudice.
When a person is taken to civil court (for example, a credit card company suing a cardholder to get paid back), the court makes a judgment for or against the plaintiff (entity initiating the lawsuit, in this example, the credit card company). If the judgment is for the plaintiff, the result is effectively a judgment against the defendant (the person taken to court in the example). Part of the judgment is the amount that is to be paid to the entity winning the court case (judgment). Judgements against a borrower (and the amount set to be paid by that borrower) will make their way onto the credit report and will cause a drop in credit score.
Only the person/landlord who put the eviction on can remove it or a court judgment in your favor.
All judgments have a negative effect upon the person's credit rating. A credit score is made up of the person's entire credit history, payment issues, debt-to-income ratio, amount of debt owed and so forth, there is not a set number of points deducted due to a judgment award.
