lien on property expiration

2 credit card judgements were granted in July 2012 and then liens for them were placed on my property shortly after. I filed bankruptcy (chapter 13) in November 2013 which was sucessfully discharged. this should also discharge the judgements so that I am no longer responible to pay them.
I just tried to refi my mortgage which is how I found out about the liens and now I am trying to find out what to do. My bankruptcy lawyer told me that the liens expires 6 years from the date they were filed even though the judgements are for 20.
So, is the 6 year expiration correct? If so, should I simply wait for 1 more year and then try to refi or is this going to bite me in the behind somehow?
