A late payment can be removed from your credit report. Any information you believe to be erroneous or inaccurate can be disputed with the 3 major credit bureaus and if that information is not verified, it must be removed.

Valid entries cannot be expunged from the consumer's credit report by a credit repair agency or by the consumer themselves, they will remain on the report for the required time period. Furthermore, such agencies cannot do anything that the consumer could not do themselves. That being the case, the consumer should not waste funds paying for a service that is often misleading, unproductive and unfortunately in some situations totally unethical. Actually, the above answer is not correct. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act of 2003, if the consumer disputes the late payment and the creditor reporting the late payment on the credit report can not prove that the consumer made the payment late, the negative mark must be removed or corrected on the report immediately.

Yes, you can increase your credit score by removing late payments from your credit report.

Bankruptcy looks worse on your credit report than a late payment. They will both drop your score quite a bit, but a bankruptcy lets your lenders know you gave up on the debts owed, so making it harder to get new loans.

You can try, but if you have a history of late payments it probably won't work. Contact the credit company that flagged the late payment and ask for your options.The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) allows any consumer to dispute any listing they believe to be erroneous or inaccurate. So yes you can remove a late payment, but probably not if it is legit. The original creditor can remove the late payment, but usually you need a good payment history with them or pay off the debt for this to happen.

However, should a payment be even ONE DAY past due, that information can be reported on your credit report without changing the RI-I1 status. There are different fields of information on your credit report. So, it is uncommon, but possible, for a past due payment to be reported that is not actually 30 days late.
