Best Answer

Bankruptcies will stay on your credit report for 7 to 10 years. The only way to get it removed is to have the courthouse where it was filed remove it or the credit bureaus remove it themselves. You can dispute it yourself to the credit bureaus or hire a credit repair service to do it for you.
