Sorry, it's court order.

Helpful to 5 out of 6 people

The only way this judgement for child support (because that IS what it is--a court order) can be taken off is after it is paid and, because of the requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (a federal regulation) it will still show up for 7 years past the pay-off date and then it will vanish.  It cannot be removed before then.

But...What if your court ordered child support was forgiven 

(through a child support hearing)?

Arrears

If you have received food stamps or student loans, motion to the court to set aside arrears.
