Will the Judgment Show Up on My Credit Report?

en español>

YES. The credit reporting bureaus will know the debtor has a judgment against him or her because the debtor's name will appear on the court's "Judgment Roll," and this is a public record.

The credit reporting bureaus get the information from each courthouse for their records. The court does not provide the information to the bureaus specifically.

When the judgment debt has been paid in full, the debtor can go to court to update his or her credit history. To learn how to do this, click here.
