Write the credit bureau asking to remove the account in question. Explain that it is beyond the 7 year mark if it is a collection. Judgments last 10 years.

BUT....if the accounts had a good payment record, they will be positive reports on your credit and can remain for ten years.  Don't fight that!  We want all the positives we can get.
