The Effingham Magistrate Court now reports all judgments to the Credit Bureau. Per O.C.G.A. 9-13-50: All creditors who receive a judgment must notify this court upon payment of the entire debt (within 60 days).
Must submit in writing:
Mark the judgment satisfied
Cancel the writ of FiFa
Failure to comply may subject the judgment creditor to monetary damages.
You may use the Affidavit Form (PDF) provided by our office to dismiss or satisfy said judgment. If you have a judgment to dispute, currently on your credit report, you must dispute it with the Credit Bureau.
