The Answer

 

Dear Tony,

You’ll need to go to the source. Get a recent copy of your credit report. On your credit report it will typically list the court case and cort where the judgment against you was obtained. Armed with that information you should contact the court and purchase a copy of the case records.

Those records will tell you exactly who was awarded the judgment against you and you can then contact them to either pay the judgment or get a letter from them saying the judgment was satisfied.
