Removing a Judgment Lien from the Record

A Discharge of Debtor does not necessarily mean that any judgments or liens are automatically removed from the State Court record/credit reports. 

The discharge generally means that creditors who were listed in the petition may not proceed against you for the balance of any debt that was incurred prior to the filing of the case.  If, however, a creditor obtained a judgment against you prior to the filing of your Chapter 13 case, and that judgment was not dealt with in your Plan, the judgment will remain.

If this pertains to you, contact your attorney to talk about your options with regard to removing the judgments or liens. You may be able to file a Motion to Void Judgments or Liens in the Bankruptcy Court to remove the judgments that were obtained by creditors prior to filing the case.
