Can I satisfy a judgment myself after bankruptcy or do I have to pay for an attorney to do it for me?

I filed bankruptcy recently and my attorney charges extra to satisfy each judgment at the court house.
Does anyone know how I can do this myself without paying an large fee for each judgment??

Please dont respond with comments such as….
pay the judgment. The judgments have been included in the Bankruptcy. Meaning the detb has been discharged.
I am looking for information on how to remove them after bankruptcy by myself with out an attorney’s fee’s.

    A judgment is never “satisfied” unless it is fully paid.

    If the judgments are included in the bankruptcy, and therefore have been discharged, there is no judgment to satisfy.

    If you are talking about getting liens avoided, you are much better off having the attorney do it, it requires a motion in bankruptcy court. Though, this might depend on the local rules for the bankruptcy court, I suspect it’s possible to avoid multiple liens in the same motion. Otherwise, there is no need to satisfy the judgments as they are discharged. They cannot attach to any future owned property, you just want them to not encumber a house if you sell it that existed before you filed.
