Having a judgment entered against you gives a creditor the right to collect on a debt. That means they can garnish your wages or put a lien on your property. The worst part? Judgments hurt your credit (& stay on for 7 years). Luckily you can start repairing your credit after a judgment. The easiest way is w/help from a pro like Credit Glory.

A judgment is entered against you, what happens now?

Having a judgment entered against you isn't good. That gives a creditor the legal right to collect on outstanding debts. So what does having a judgment against you mean?

  • Creditors have the right to garnish your wages
  • You could have a lien placed on your property
  • You might have to file for bankruptcy

That's not even the worst part!

What a judgment means for your credit score

Judgments seriously hurt your credit score — and stay on your credit report for 7 years! Poor credit leaves you with fewer options for loans and lines of credit. The ones you do qualify for often leave you paying more in high-interest rates.

Luckily there are steps you can take to avoid paying a judgment — & even get it removed. This helps protect your credit score and limit the effects of the judgment. So what do you do?

How to save your credit after a judgment

Dealing with a judgment is scary. Luckily, you have options to save your credit and start improving your score. So what can you do?

  • Attempt to vacate the judgment - If a debt collector made errors filing their lawsuit, you have grounds for vacating the judgment. Vacating a judgment means the debt can't be collected until a new trial starts.
  • File a claim of exemption - Having property or wages seized because of debt is scary. Filing a claim of exemption prevents creditors from seizing certain assets (like your home).
  • Validate & dispute errors yourself - Inaccurate judgments can show up on your credit report. If a judgment can't be verified, your best option is to dispute it.
  • Hire a credit repair professional - Looking for errors & disputing a judgment yourself is tough. Credit repair companies (like Credit Glory) quickly identify & dispute errors for you (boosting your score).
