I just satisfied a Small Claims Judgment in North Carolina.
When I went to court for this I had actually gone there for getting it removed. The people at the court said pay it and we will cancel it. I paid it, not knowing that in their language it means SATISFIED.
How do I get that removed? Can any one help me?

What you want to do is file a motion to vacate their order of judgement.
You should be able to call and or go to the courts website and obtain the forms to do this.
You also can contact an attorney to do it, however, I would do it Prose.
A good reasion to have it vacated is simply you had financial hardship and you have paid it. Most likely the judge will decide in your favor anyways as the place whom put the judgement on your credit likely wont want to spend any time defending your motion to vacate.

HappyDays is incorrect.
You as the defendant can file a motion to set aisde the judgement and or vacate it.
You can do it if they wont, it isn't up to them or you if it can be removed its up to the judge, which is why either petitioner or defendant can file motions.
