Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. So you paid the bill 1 month late, it was paid in full and then they sued you and got a judgment?
Good morning and thank you for the reply. NO, they can not. I say that because the lien secures the judgment. If the judgment has been satisfied, there is NO legal basis for it to be remain and it needs to be released. As such, you can demand that they file a satisfaction of judgment with the court and release it ( https://www.wicourts.gov/formdisplay/GF-129.pdf?formNumber=GF-129&formType=Form&formatId=2&language=en) or else threaten to sue them and go after them for attorney fees as well, if this has been satisfied and they are keeping the lien in bad faith.
