Judgments have a significant impact on your credit score — and stay on your credit report for 7 years! Did you know that up to 70% of judgments are awarded in error? Vacating a judgment is a way to remove it (& protect your credit). The easiest way to remove errors from your credit report is w/help from a credit pro (like Credit Glory).
What is a vacated judgment?
If a creditor made legal errors in a lawsuit against you, you have the right to appeal. Doing this asks the court to vacate (or void) the original judgment because you weren't given a fair trial. Successfully vacated judgments mean the creditors have to re-file their lawsuit, and can't collect on any debts.
The good news? Up to 70% of judgments are awarded in error. Vacating a judgment makes it void, so it's no longer on your credit report. If there's a good reason to think a judgment is inaccurate — consider having the judgment vacated.
3 Ways to vacate (& remove) inaccurate judgments
You need a strong case and the right evidence to vacate a judgment. That means showing the court errors, and mistakes prevented you from getting a fair trial. Vacating and removing judgments is not an easy process. Here's what you can do to fight a judgment:
1. Appeal the original ruling
Did the collection agency make an error filing the lawsuit? Were you not notified of your right to dispute debts w/in the first 30 days? If you weren't properly served or the collection agency didn't follow the law, you have grounds to appeal.
2. Have the debt verified
Debt records aren't always accurate — and you don't want to be stuck with a debt that isn't yours. Having the debt verified is important. Not only does the collection agency have to provide proof it's yours, but if they don't, you can dispute it.
3. Dispute the debt
If there's no evidence proving the debt is yours, you can dispute it. Your next option is sending a dispute letter to credit bureaus with the proof for your claim to have it removed. An easier alternative is having a credit repair company (like Credit Glory) dispute it for you.

While you can check your credit, look for errors, and dispute them yourself, it takes time (& hard work). Looking for an easier alternative (that's less hassle)? Consider working with a credit repair expert — like Credit Glory. They do the work for you, so you don't have to.
