I am sorry to hear about this. In a situation like this, a motion to vacate the judgment would need to be filed with the court. In the motion, it would need to be explained to the Judge that a judgment was entered against the wrong person and it was supposed to be entered against a Jr., not Sr. As such, the judgment could always be amended as well, to reflect the proper party, assuming that Jr was served and placed on notice about this.
They would also need to contact and advise the 3 major credit bureaus about this and that it was an error, so it could be removed.
Yes but once you can present a court order, showing it was entered against the wrong person, it could change. it In addition, you can try and sue the plaintiff, for failing to perform their due diligence and enter it and sue the right person.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
