What to do if I paid and satisfied a judgement 4 years ago but the attorney's office never filed a satisfaction of judgement with the court?
Are they legally obligated to file? If so, what are my rights and what actions can I take? Can they file and date the form satisfied as of 4 years ago?
If you satisfied a judgment against you and the entity or agency who was supposed to file the proper paperwork did not, you are responsible for mitigating your own damages. If you just found out the satisfaction of judgment was not filed, then you need to file the proper motion in court showing proof of payment and receipt and hopefully that will help. Review your credit reports (you get a free one each year from the three credit reporting agencies), and see if you can dispute it there. If you file suit, you need to see if the entity is immune from suit or at the very least if you have any quantifiable damages.
