The recording of the judgment was a violation of the automatic stay and should of have happened. I would write a certified letter to the creditor and attach a copy of your notice of bankruptcy filing evidencing the date it was filed. Tell them you are giving them 30 days to remove the abstract of judgment that was filed in violation of the stay or you will have your bankruptcy case reopened to file a motion for an order to show cause why sanctions should not be issued against them for failure to remove the lien after receiving notice that the bankruptcy case was filed first.
Mr. Larkin is licensed to practice law in CA and is located in San Diego. His response here does not constitute legal advice and does not create an attorney/ client relationship. The response is in the form of legal education and is intended to provide general information about the matter in question. Many times the questioner may leave out details which would make the reply unsuitable. Mr. Larkin strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in their own state to acquire more information about the specifics of their case.
You can also consider asking for damages for violating the automatic stay - especially if you have to hire an attorney to fix the problem.
Good luck with your situation.
