Name of state: Missouri

I found out I was responsible for only $12.68 of a judgement where I was codefendant. It was medical debts for my when-I can-afford-it ex wife's kids - and there is one mention of a bill I had from 3-31-04 for the 12.68. I assume it was there to include me in the suit. I had no idea I owed it and have visitted the same doctor's office for YEARS. She was tossing bills and hiding other debt which I will be working on for 15 years (second mortgage) I have a clean record since I took over my own fincances except for this. My kids have no debt because I paid it when I took them.

She and her kids moved out prior to the summons.

I called the lawyer involved to try and make payments, lawyer refused and wanted full amount else the judgment - I got the judgment.

I still worked out payments with the lawyer of 100/mo plus whatever extra I could pay.

SAME company calls, wanting more money, and threatens suit for more of my step-kids debts. I called the hospital who wanted the money and they said I was not responsible. After getting advice here, hired an attorney who got them off my back because I am not responsible for other adult's kids medical debts. I really didn't think it through the first time around.

Since then, I have paid off the judgment and got the Satisfaction of Judgment letter.

I went to www.creditboards.com and cannot find how to get rid of a satisfied judgment that I should not have had. They can keep the money - I blame myself for that. I've searched here and the people asking actually owed the money involved. Did I make it impossible to get rid of this judgment by paying the debt???
