    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . No. You shouldn't, since the debt has been settled. I suggest making sure that the creditor has withdrawn the complaint. You can check with the creditor on that, and you can also check the file at the clerk of court's office to see if the complaint has been withdrawn. Since this is an action on a debt, it doesn't involve a crime or your criminal record.
