I was a defendant in a law suit general sessions....I lost and had a 16k judgment.
I have agreed to settle for 9k.
I need to make sure that the judgment is vacated.
I need the correct language to be in the agreement.
Here is what the have in the agreement.
Undersigned plaintiff understands and agrees that upon payment of the total sum of 9k,She will execute and present for entry with the clerk of general sessions court of Shelby county a "Satisfaction of judgment" that reflects that the judgment entered against defendant has been released and fully satisfied.
I need to add language that it be vacated.....How do I do this?
Did you get my response?
Ok....but this will show as a "satisfied" judgment on my credit file....I want to be taken of...hence the motion to vacate language that I need.
Sorry for the hassle !
