I am wondering if I filed the paperwork with the court (that it has been paid), if this will raise my score or hurt it, it's almost six years old now, maybe I should just leave it alone? Any suggestions would be most helpful. Oh also, my husband and I will be applying for a mortgage in less than 4 months, so I really can't take the chance to drop my score.Thanks for any advice!!!!
