Judgement Showing in BK

I was under the impression that judgements could not be filed under BK cases?  When I pulled my 3 credit reports today my judgement is only showing on TU and its showing paid under BK??   Can someone tell me if this is right?  I thought judgements couldnt be filed under BK?  My lawyer even told me that.  I also have 2 student loans showing filed in my BK.

Date filed:  Nov 21, 2006
Date paid:  Jan 13, 2012
Date reported:  Nov 21, 2006
 
Amount:  $778

Re: Judgement Showing in BK

Mine doesnt show a 0 balance.  Just shows included in bankruptsy and the date paid.  Trying to figure out how to have it vacated.  Dont want to pay a lawyer to do that for me.  It isnt showing on my other two agencies.  I cant dispute it in TU cause I already have several things I am disputing and im waiting on TU to decide on them first before I can open another case.

Re: Judgement Showing in BK

I believe you have to get them removed by the court where they were filed on. Not sure where you are but where I am from I am legally able to file a motion to vacate the judgements 1 year after my bk was discharged. Then they can be removed from my reports.

 

I doubled check my reports and they in fact say satisfied with 0 balance as well as iib. Check your discharge report, it should say if your judgement was included.

 

Just wait on some of the other myficoer's advice.

You will need to check if your state has something similar...
