Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thanks for the effort to move the question to general legal. First of all...what the credit bureaus report is a separate issue. If their info has to be corrected, correspondence should be sent to do so if there are reporting mistakes, but the mistake with them right now is in your favor...NO JUDGMENT APPEARS...so let sleeping dogs lie!
You say that the lawyer is adding these fees on a monthly basis....
1. Where and how? In monthly statements to you?
2. When all is said and done, the terms of your original credit card agreement with Citibank controls as to what can happen before and after judgment or at any stage in the debtor-creditor relationship. What does it say on the subject?
You can't have the judgment vacated due to the lawyer's action, if the judgment was validly obtained in the first instance. Sorry. But you MUST SEND A LETTER TO THE CREDIT BUREAU CORRECTING THE AMOUNT AND a letter to the lawyer certified mail RRR AND REGULAR MAIL telling him to cease and desist or you will take legal action.
BUT YOU MUST BE ARMED IN BOTH INSTANCES with the wording of he original contract with CITIBANK that would prove your point that the lawyer's actions are contrary to the agreement.
