If a satisfied judgment is showing on your credit report, your best option is to dispute the info. You can file a dispute on your own, but it's a ton of work. An easier way is with help from credit repair experts at Credit Glory.
How a judgment affects your credit score
A judgment can drastically decrease your credit score. The worst part? A reduced score increases the likelihood that you're stuck with high-interest rates (costing a ton)! Even if you satisfy a judgment, it may stay on your credit report unless you do something about it.
Your best choice when a judgment has been satisfied but it's still on your report
As you know, a judgment on your credit report decreases your score. What you may not know is they must meet strict reporting criteria — set by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) — to appear on your credit report. Why is this good news? It's likely you can remove a judgment from your report.
How do you do it? If the judgment is showing on your report (but it's already been satisfied), it's your right to dispute it. You have 2 options when disputing — DIY (which can be confusing & time-consuming) or simplify the process with an experienced credit repair company (like Credit Glory).
How to dispute (& remove) a satisfied judgment yourself
Disputing inaccurate judgments on your credit report on your own is possible — but it's a tedious process. Here are the steps to file a dispute:
Step 1: Write a dispute letter
There are several options for drafting a dispute letter. You can start from scratch — or find a template online. The tricky part is finding a legit template — especially when Google gives over 74 million search results! On the other hand, a partner (like Credit Glory) can simplify the process with proven results.
Step 2: Collect supporting docs
If you find a legit sample letter, you need to clearly state your name, address, and what you are disputing. Then collect all relevant documents to support your claim. A key here is ensuring you send copies — not originals.
Step 3: Wait for a decision
If you manage to write a letter, compile the documents, and find out where to send your letter — the last step is waiting for results. Assuming you did everything perfectly, the dispute results are sent to you in writing. The result? After a long wait — sometimes months — the record may be removed.
