How is it recorded that I made full payment?

The judgment creditor must complete, sign and file the Acknowledgement of Satisfaction of Judgment section of the Notice of Entry of Judgment (SC-130) or an Acknowledgement of Satisfaction of Judgment (EJ-100) when you have paid the judgment in full.


You may ask the Small Claims Court how you can satisfy the judgment if the judgment creditor does not file an Acknowledgment of Satisfaction of Judgment (EJ-130). Complete a Declaration of Judgment Debtor Regarding Satisfaction of Judgment (SC-20) and supply proof that you have paid the judgment. This proof should be signed by the judgment creditor and can be a:

  • Cash receipt
  • Check
  • Money order

The recorded Notice of Entry of Judgment (SC-130) or Acknowledgement of Satisfaction of Judgment (EJ-100) is considered the receipt for the judgment and is used to close the case.


For the forms listed above and for a complete list of Judicial Council Small Claims forms, go to the California Courts website.
