A Chapter seven will remain on the credit report for ten years. You can always request, legally or informally. But the law states that bankruptcy may remain on your credit report for 10 years from the date of filing. The time limit is strictly adhered to by the credit bureaus for Chapter 7 bankruptcies. The bureaus are much more flexible with Chapter 13. These can, by law, remain for 10 years. But it is customary for them to be shielded from view after 7.
