Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Has the lien attached to your property?
Have you demanded that the creditor file a formal release of the lien with the land records office?
Ok, that is a child support judgment. So if you aren't the person named, then you can file a formal dispute immediately with all 3 credit agencies, TransUnion, Equifax and Experian, and request that they remove that from your credit report.
But it looks like this was recorded in the county clerk's office, so it would normally attach to any real estate in your name automatically.
So you need to check with your lender to see if it is showing up as being a lien on your property. If it is, you can contact the creditor and tell them that if they don't file a lien release, you will sue them in a quiet title action to dissolve the lien and hold them liable for the costs since this is an improper lien.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
Unfortunately, I am not allowed to represent customers from the site or recommend anyone personally under my agreement with JustAnswer. However, these are a couple sites that we attorneys actually use if we need foreign counsel in a state where we aren't licensed. Further, customers have consistently reported good results with these sites:
They screen their attorneys based on geographic location, area of practice, time in practice, cost and customer reviews. You would just need a real estate attorney to check your title to see if there is a lien and then threaten them with a lawsuit if they don't release it if there is.
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
