Vacating Judgments After BK7 Discharge

Hello Forum,

 

I've read several posts about states allowing people to have judgments vacated that were discharged in BK7 after a certain amount of time.  But mostly the information I read referred to NY & NJ.  Does anyone know if this can be done in Maryland.  Or is there a link or website that could provide more information on this issue.  I am in the credit cleanup & rebuilding process and would like to utilize this option if it's available to me.  I'd appreciate any responses.  Thanks!

Re: Vacating Judgments After BK7 Discharge

I'm trying to do the same thing. I am in GA and what I have been told is that the attorney office would need to start the process of filing a motion to vacate.

Contact your local court(s) where the judgment was granted and ask for info on how to go about this. It should be doable. In MN, one needs to file a Motion of Vacate Judgment with the court that has jurisdiction, which will "close" a judgment. You'll need a certified copy of the discharge to make this happen. Good luck.

 

Edit: Attorney would be helpful but you can save the money and do it yourself.

What happens if you got nothing back about it?  All I got was my discharge paperwork from my BK....The CB DO report it right with a 0 balance and IIB and satisfied.

Re: Vacating Judgments After BK7 Discharge

If it's included in your chap 7 and reporting as satisfied/closed, that's a good thing. However, just to be on the safe side, I would confirm that with the local court - not bk court.Just call them up and give them the case/judgment number, and if they say it's satisfied then you're good. You'll need that proof when you apply for a mortgage eventually.
