You can discharge a judgment. The lien remains after bankruptcy unless it is removed by court order. You can remove the lien if it impairs an exemption to which you are entitled on the date your case is filed. This is done by filing a Motion to Avoid Lien under section 522(f) of the Bankruptcy Code. You need to consult with an attorney to see if this is something that can be accomplished in your particular case.
