    I recently paid off a judgement. I used a
    credit card to pay this off. Now the creditor does not want to issue papers for
    release of judgment until they are sure
    I can not dispute the item with the credit
    card company. They want to wait 30-60 days
    before they issue the release papers so I
    can not dispute it with the credit card
    company. I would appreciate any insite that
    anybody could give me. Is this normal
    or should I call and dispute this item with
    the credit card company now before it
    goes any further.

    check with an attorney. most states have a provision requiring the judgment creditor to furnish you with a release within a specified period. the creditor may be liable for damages and staturory penalties for failing to comply.
