I have an order from the court to dissolve writ of garnishment.

Customer Question

I have an order from the court to dissolve writ of garnishment. How can I use this to have the judgement removed from the credit bureau?
Explanation of how it all happened: divorce paper awarded exhusband a camper and he had 90 days to remove my name from it. I stead, he filled and succeeded bancruptcy and allowed the camper to be repossessed. I went through a hearing awarding me "head of household" to dissolve writ of garnishment. Now how do I get this removed from the credit bureau?

A garnishment and a judgment are two entirely different things.Dissolving a writ of garnishment doesn't mean a judgment does not still exist so you can't use that order to get the judgment removed from your credit report.To do that you would have to file a Motion to Vacate Judgment or a Satisfaction of Judgment if the judgment was paid.
