How long does a public record stay on your report?
I had a judgement against me in 2008 and I paid it as soon as I found out about it. I was going through a divorce and not leaving at home. I had not forwarded my mail and didn't get notice til after my court date. I paid it but didn't make the deal about them taking it off my record. The report says judgement satisfied. But it is still there. How long will it stay on my record?
