Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Whether or not the judgment would be vacated depends on the terms of the settlement that your attorney has reached with the other party --- the terms of which you should have been advised.
In short, the judge is going to do whatever the parties ask (in all likelihood) so long as everyone agrees. So, the issue isn't whether the judge will uphold the judgment or vacate it.......the issue will be whether or not the parties (you and the other side) have agreed to withdraw/vacate the judgment.
That said, it is very likely that a term of the settlement is for the judgment to be vacated......and since you're settling, the other party really has no use for a judgment any longer --- because the settlement being paid will resolve the debt and make the judgment irrelevant.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks!
