It's due to the fact that Child Support is a court order (a judgement) and matter of public record.  Some parents are not good payers of child support, unfortunately.  My former husband was, the son of a patient of mine was and you are.  Keep records of the payments and, when the payment period is over, that "Satisfaction of Judgement" notice will carry the most weight.  Your record of regular payment should work in your favor, too, until the satisfaction is sent. 

You can be proud you are taking good care of your parental responsibilities.  Too many people don't.

it should not appear

Well the way I see it. your credit score is part of you and the consumer. you borrow and take loans from a bank. or buy and or pay for services. Childsupport is not a bank or a consumer selling you something you need. so why should it appear on your report.
