My question involves judgment recovery in the State of: South Carolina, Greenville County
Hi I live in the state of South Carolina. I paid for a judgment back in 2011 and the creditor said they have sent out a letter to courthouse to release this judgment. Come 5 months later I found out that the law firm that was supposed to send this satisfaction out went bankrupt, so the satisfaction was never sent out. I called the creditor and they forward the court records to another law firm. The new law firm supposedly overnighted the satisfaction to the court on Wednesday 4/4/2012. I checked with courthouse yesterday 4/5/2012 and the release still has not been processed or recorded. They are closed today so I cannot check with them. My question is normally how long will it take the courthouse to record the release on their system? I am asking because I will be closing on a house next week and this needs to be taken care of before I can sign the mortgage papers.
TL;DR : How long does it take to the court to release a judgment (recorded on their system as released) after receiving the satisfactory documents?
