If your first bankruptcy was dismissed and the second one filed but you never made payments for either can they be removed from your credit report?

The second according to my credit report only says filed. My transUnion doesn't show it and I don't have my Experian report. I will have to contact the court I am sure to get the documentation I need. thanks for your input. Your first bankruptcy can be removed, because it was dismissed. A dismissal is a legal disposition of the legal action bankruptcy. The other disposition is discharged. You don't mention what the disposition was of the second bankruptcy. If it was granted, and your debt discharged, but you never paid on it, (was it a chapter 13?) then it is not discharged. You need to find out the correct status of the bankruptcy before this question can be answered.
