How Can an Attorney Remove A Judgment?

When we check our credit report, there are some instances that we see some judgment that may be inaccurate. It can’t be helped because the three credit bureaus are not always consistent of what they are generating for your credit report. There is a way to have it removed. However, the first thing we need is to understand, what is a judgment? These are the debts that are placed on our credit report whether it is accurate or not. If you want to have a judgment removed, it needs to be disputed. The best way to go about it is if you will hire an attorney to do the job. It is because of the complexity of the situation that you might encounter. Here are the three ways that a lawyer can remove a judgment on your credit report.

  1. The Debt Was Paid

An attorney can represent you in cases where you are disputing the judgment placed on your credit report. In a situation whereas the debt was paid on time and the report was just inaccurate, the credit companies will be able to remove the record from your name. However, if the payment was made after the judgment was already placed on your credit report, it is not something that they will remove. The best that you can get is to have the debt tagged as paid. It is easy most especially if you have proof or records that will show that the debt was in fact paid on time. For safety precaution, it is highly recommended if you will keep tabs on all your receipts most especially if it is something that is related to anything that may appear on your credit report.

  1. The Debt Is For Someone Else

We can’t help if some people have the same names as we do. In these cases, the credit companies will mistakenly put the debt under your name. It is easy to resolve, and an attorney can speed up the case to make sure that your name will be cleared from the debt that doesn’t belong to you. Your lawyer will just have to present some proof that you have not acquired the said debt under any circumstances. Some of the records that will be required are proof of billing, birth certificate and social security number to name a few. There may be other documents necessary and all you need to do, is have it ready.

  1. The period has expired

The timeframe that the debt will remain on your credit report is within seven years and six months. After that period, the judgment placed on your credit report can already be removed. You can just ask your lawyer to send a petition due to the expired timeframe. Once it has been confirmed, the credit companies can have it removed. There are also instances where it can be deleted earlier, but it is best if you can coordinate with a legal representative.

Doing it by yourself is not a problem but with the help of an attorney, things will push through more efficiently because they already know the process that needs to be done.…

Principles Of Law

srGeneral principles of law are essential rules whose content is very general and abstract, sometimes reducible to a maxim or a simple conception. Unlike other types of rules such as enacted law or agreements, general principles of law have not been posited according to the official sources of law. Yet, general principles of law are considered to be part of positive law, even if they are just used as subsidiary tools. They constitute necessary rules for the very functioning of the system and, as such, are inducted from the lawful reasoning of those entitled to take legal decisions in the process of applying the rule, notably the judiciary. They also constitute integrative tools of the system as they fill actual or potential legal gaps.

  • Reference Worksgfty

In spite of what many authors of standard manuals of international rule have stated in introduction to their own theories, there is a surprising dearth of literature, given the importance and difficulty of the topic—and compared to the literature dedicated to treaty and custom law. Also, much of the literature generally addresses the general principles in an encompassing manner, dealing with all the aspects of the topic, be they its history, its meaning, its illustrations, and so forth. Given these two specific features, much of this literature can therefore be careful referential. Another exciting feature lies in the fact that this general literature is quite time-bound, with clear waves of works having been published at certain periods of time, such as during the years following the entrance into force of the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ) and International Court of Justice (ICJ) Statute, or during the 1960s. Other recent works have also been written on the topic, yet without diminishing the intellectual aura those earlier workings still possess.

  • Historical and Classical Pieces

These works of reference are fairly self-referential and generally build onto one another. Usually quite dated, they areyt thorough works of deep rigor and thinker subtlety; they also give for exhaustive bibliographies and case law references on the topic and on connected fields. They too constitute involuntary witnesses to a certain way of approaching international law and its historical progress. The workings referenced below are classified according to importance in terms of thoroughness and up-to-date knowledge. Pellet 1974 has contributed the mainly (and most recently) to the theory of the domain. Kolb 1999 (in French) on the rule of good faith provides exhaustive multilingual bibliographies and a true humanities perspective. Thus far, Cheng 2006 is the most current Western-oriented sum of knowledge in English on the topic after Lauterpacht 1927, which is usually characterized as the primary fundamental reference on the topic in the history of the field. Schwarzenberger 1955 is also still a usual reference, providing a perspective based on realism or power. The conciseness of Anzilotti 1999 on the subject did not preclude its fame. Herczegh 1969 is a short but dense contribution to the topic and abides for the mainly part to the so-called socialist legal theories of its time.
