The documents that are on file with the local recorders office are permanent, so it will always remain "public record" in that sense. On the other hand, most negative information on your credit report must drop after 7 years and that is probably the question you intended to ask.

You can't remove your name from a deed. After the foreclosure sale a foreclosure deed will be recorded from the lender to the new owner. Your deed will remain on record as part of the record history of the property.

Unless it was committed prior to your 18th birthday at which point it will be shielded from public view, it will always remain unless legal action is taken to expunge it.

Public Intoxication is a misdemeanor offense, but it will remain a permanent part of your criminal history record if it occurred after your 18th birthday.

Question isn't clear. An active (i.e.- unserved) warrant is not usually a "public' record. The fact that you may have been arrested on a warrant IS a public record. If that doesn't answer your question, reword and resubmit it.

The key phrase is "PUBLIC records." All public records are always just that: Always available to the public for scrutiny.

The time a DUI conviction stays on a public record varies between states. In some states it is on one's record forever. In other states it will remain on record for at least 5 years.

Foreclosures remain on your report for 7 years. It is difficult to get a foreclosure removed.

Foreclosure is a legal procedure filed against borrowers who have failed to pay a mortgaged home loan. If the loan itself is reported to the credit bureaus, then prior to the filing of the legal action the "tradeline" (account listing) would be notated "foreclosure" or "foreclosure proceedings begun". This idicates the account is seriously delinquent and filing of legal action is imminient. This "reporting" is done by the lender/Data Furnisher. This entry would remain for 7 years from the month/year the account was last paid on time immediately prior to its' default. If no remedy is provided (quick sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure or payment in full), then the lender proceeds to file the actual legal action. This does not "get reported". Rather, as with all public records, independent contractors scan public records and re-sells these to various databases, including the three major credit bureaus. By this method, the legal action of foreclosure finds its' way onto your personal credit report. The legal item would be displayed on your credit report for 7 years from the date of filing. So, it is possible to have two notations, one in the "account history" section and one in the "public records" sections, of the same foreclosure. Both entries would be correct. The public record would remain for slightly longer than the account entry notation. If the foreclosure is accurate, there is little a consumer can do to have it removed. This information would be considered vital credit data. Foreclosure is huge indicator of credit risk and is the exact reason that credit information is referenced by prospective lenders. If, on the slim chance, you did manage to have an accurate foreclosure item removed from your credit report; the public record at your local courthouse would still remain. Thus, the record would most likely reappear on your credit report in the future. It can be extremely difficult to obtain a mortgage loan with a foreclosure listed on your credit report. Obviously, this is the biggest indication to lenders that you do not repay home loans. It is also the best reason to avoid foreclosure at all costs. Even a deed in lieu of foreclosure is better than allowing a lender to file against you.

A foreclosure remains for a minimum of 7 years. In some states, it can legally remain for longer.

In Florida a person can remain in high school until they are 21 years old. This is also the case in most states.

If you were arrested, charged, and convicted of that offense it will ALWAYS remain on your criminal record. That is why it is called a criminal HISTORY.

User Avatar

If they are filed with the court, they are public records. If they are not filed, they can remain private. It is up to the testator to make that decision.

DUI isn't just a traffic offense - it's a criminal offense. That'll remain on your criminal record for life.

Unless it occurred prior to your 18th birthday any criminal charge against you will always remain on your criminal history record.

It will always remain on your juvenile record, however, that will be sealed to the public when you reach the age of majority (adult) in Texas.

On standard credit reports, BKs remain being reported for 10 years from discharge. As a matter of public record or for special record requests they are available for much longer.

A juvenile misdemeanor is sealed when one turns 18. An adult misdemeanor will always remain on your record.

User Avatar

No. In most cases, public record will remain. That is why many BK attorneys, credit counselors, etc. inform you that a bankruptcy never really "goes away".

Once a probate proceeding is filed in court the file will remain a public record forever.

Points are effective for 2 years from the date of offense. They remain itemized on your public motor vehicle record for 7 years.

In general it will remain on your record forever; they don't just automatically expire. Some states have a procedure allowing for certain types of crimes to be expunged or sealed, removing them from the public record.
