I'm getting a loan and the bank found a 8 yr old judgement.

I'm getting a loan and the bank found a 8 yr old judgement. I have no idea what it is but, the bank found the creditor/Attorney's and they can't be found. The creditor says judgement is satisfied according to their records. They won't send a satisfaction of judgement letter to my bank, they say it will take 30 days and it is holding up my loan.How do I get them to send this letter to me sooner? Does an Attorney have to sign the letter?Thank you

I had a judgement set against me which I have recently paid

Hi Pearl, I had a judgement set against me which I have recently paid in full. The court has let me know that they have sent the satisfaction of payment to the lawyer who had taken over the debt, but they have not yet confirmed they have received that to issue the warrant of satisfaction. In my research, I have found that in the state of NJ, once a judgement is satisfied that I can request a motion to vacate the judgement. When I mentioned this to the Union County court officer, she told me that this is not at all possible. Would you be able to advise me if that is in fact possible and if there are steps that I can take to have the judgment removed sooner rather than later?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: New Jersey. I am not sure when the warrant was issued since it was sent to my parents house and not given to me directly. The date on the judgement is April 2014.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: It has been filed and is being reported on my credit report.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No thanks
