Removing a Garnsihment & Collection
We had a judgment made against us for an apartment complex for about $2K, as well as a collection agency for the same thing of about $4K. Are both valid? My wages were garnished for the Judgment, and I just received the release. I know I need to request a satisfied document, but will this satisfy the collection as well or is the remainder on that still valid? Should I dispute it since it's over the same debt? My credit score just jumped up 34 points cause it showed a big chuck off the collection. So I am thinking I should be able to dispute and have it removed totally since the debt is now satisfied with the original creditor due to the judgment being released and paid
