Judgement

Hi all,
 
If you have a judgement on your credit that has been paid, once it is updated as such, will your score increase at all? Also, is the attny supposed to send you documentation that the judgement has been paid in full?
 
Any advice will be helpful

Re: Judgement

You could probably get documentation from the court house responsible. Call them and see what they can send you. I know that it will stay on your report 7 years from being paid. I do not think it will increase your score but could be wrong.

Your score does not increase. You should get a Release of Lien Judgment letter signed and notorized.
 
Thanks
