No. What will happen is all the defaulted accounts listed in the bankruptcy will be marked as such.."included in bankruptcy". The credit history, late payments, judgments, etc. will remain the same. In addition to the scenario in the above answer: The bankruptcy filing itself will be listed in the "public records" portion of your credit report. The disposition needs to be listed also (the discharge). The "bad marks" (i.e., the accounts) will show on your credit for 7 years. The bankruptcy listing will show for 7 years for a completed and discharged Chapter 13 bankruptcy and 10 years for a discharged Chapter 7.

Seven (7) years from date filed for a dismissed chapter 13, ten (10) years for a dismissed chapter 7.Although it is true that the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act does provide that bankruptcy entries will remain for 10 years, there are some creditors that will only leave a chapter 13 bankruptcy on your record for 7, rather than 10 years. They do this to encourage people to pay part of their debts rather than discharge it all under a chapter 7. More importantly, the effect of bankruptcy on one's ability to get credit is vastly overstated. The key to getting the credit you need has far more to do with the amount of present income you have rather than any negatives on your credit report. In short, if you have good present income, the creditors will look past your credit report to your wallet in the sense that it is possible, even with a bankruptcy on one's record, to get credit for cars and new credit cards as soon as you are discharged in a chapter 7 (about four months after you file), and after a year or so, you can even get a mortgage on a house.

Can a student loan that was dismissed from a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and paid in full remain on your credit report longer than 7 years after the original bankruptcy filing date?

It can remain on your credit report until someone decides to get it off. To remedy, you write to the credit reporting agency and explain that it was discharged by payment in full in a Chapter 13 more than seven years prior and ask them to get it off your report. They have to validate the debt at this point. It may take a couple of letters, etc. but eventually they will remove it. It isn't automatically removed. I am concerned because of the harrasment. They call me daily??

The length of time a discharged 7 or 13 bankruptcy can remain on a credit report has always been 10 years. A dismissed chapter 13 remains for 7 years a dismissed chapter 7 remains for 10 years.
