It may not help your credit rating but you will have "peace of mind" Never be afraid to pay off debt!! Debt free is a worry free life :-)

Love this site so far. I just ran my credit score (it's 609)and have also pulled all 3 credit reports. I am at the tail end of paying off my credit card debt in which most cards went into collections. I have one more to settle but have two judgements that have been paid off within the last 5 months yet they are still showing as unresolved on my credit reports. How can I change this and what effect will it have on my credit score once they are shown as being settled?
