Court Judgment

Recommended Posts

Please help! I had a small claims suit brought against me back in February for a Discover Card bill. I was able to work something out with the law firm that Discover hired to bring the suit against me. They did a stipulation for dismissal with the court and I agreed to make monthey payments. Unfortunately my last payment has been hard to make. I just received in the mail from the law office a order for judgment in favor of Discover Card. My question is will this judgment be putilized on my credit report ? If so who will be responsible for that information the court of Discover card. I asked the collector at the law firm but was pretty much given the run around. Any help appreciated!

Most likely yes.  Once it becomes a public record the bureaus have a search bot that combs the public records at the court house and matches them to consumer files.

Neither really.  It gets listed as a judgment.  Once you satisfy it then the law firm is responsible for notifying the court the judgment is satisfied.
