Vacating a Satisfied Judgment
My hubby and I had a judgment filed against us in 1997. We paid it off within 5 months.
We were trying to get an auto loan about a year or so afterwards and needed proof from the court it was satisfied. We contacted the opposing attorney and he went to the judge and got a "satisfaction- release of judgment".
What I didn't notice until a few months ago- the attorney also motioned for a dismissal and to vacate the judgment- both approved for and signed by the judge.
So- yes- a judgment CAN be vacated after payment. Not sure of the ins and outs but it has happened for me.
I may bend, but I will not break
