I am the judgment creditor and my judgment has been paid, what do I need to do?
Upon payment of the entire debt upon which a judgment or writ of fieri facias (FiFa) has been issued, the judgment creditor shall timely (within 60 days) direct the clerk(s) of the appropriate court(s) in person or writing to:
  • Cancel the writ of FiFa, if a writ was issued
  • Mark the judgment satisfied

The failure to timely comply may subject the judgment creditor to monetary damages, O.C.G.A. 9-13-80. The writ of FiFa should be canceled with clerk of superior court in each county where you filed the writ. Also, this form should be submitted to clerk on all judgment and consent judgments upon receipt of full payment.
