Part of credit history.

Though the child support may be paid off it is a matter of public record and will be reported as part of your credit history for seven years after the date of fnal payment.  This is a requirement under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which is a federal regulation.

That it is paid off is a positive that should very soon be showing on your credit reports, which you should check every year.  If you have not been doing so, please go to annualcreditreport.com and get all 3 credit reports.  Look them over and file a dispute on each error with the credit bureau reporting same.  They have to investigate and either verify or delete the errors.  DO NOT file a dispute on something negative in your record that is, in fact, an account you have or did have.

Hope this helps.
