Bankruptcy will most likely erase your default judgment. Most civil judgments are eliminated by bankruptcy. To discuss further, please contact us.

It will be discharged if it is a dischargeable debt and the creditor does not timely object to discharge. Being a judgment doesn't have anything to do with it. Certain debts are not dischargeable, such as debts incurred by fraud.
