Hi I have 2 default judgments on my credit report. The last time I paid my debt was in 2013 and was unemployed until 2015. I was obviously unable to pay my debt in this period and did inform the creditors of this. Then in 2016 and 2017 received a judgment from two different creditors. Which is 3 years and 4 years after i had made a payment or agreed to pay them. To my understanding the debt was supposed to be prescribed and I recieved these judgments after the period of prescribed debt.
What can she do to have the judgments removed from her credit record.
