How long does a discharged bankruptcy remain on a credit report?
Accounts stay on your credit history for seven years. Bankruptcies stay on for ten. * New bankruptcy reform laws have no bearing on credit reportage. A discharged chapter 7 or 13 remain on the report for 10 years from discharge date. A dismissed chapter 7 remains for 10 years and a dismissed chapter 13 remains for 7 years.
How should an obligation that is discharged in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy be reflected in a subsequent credit report?
Bankruptcies are a matter of public record and this is why they appear in credit histories. A Chapter 13 listing will remain on your credit report for seven years from the filing date and a Chapter 7 will remain on the credit report for 10 years from the filing date. The credit report entry will state the bankruptcy was filed and dismissed, not discharged.
Bankruptcy. Bankruptcy will not remove a judgment from the debtor's credit report. The judgment will still remain for the required time if it is discharged in bankruptcy, settled or paid in full. Valid judgments remain for the required 7 years. Most judgments are renewable and can be reentered on the debtor's credit report whenever that action is taken.
Can a bankruptcy entry on a credit report be removed when the bankruptcy was discharged in 1999 and it is listed on the credit report as 2006?

The disposition needs to be listed also (the discharge). The "bad marks" (i.e., the accounts) will show on your…

Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which…

Your credit report will show both the accounts (which were listed first) and the legal entry of the bankruptcy in the public records portion of your credit report.

If a judgment was included in, and discharged by, your bankruptcy; there is no need to obtain a separate disposition.

If you make voluntary payments on a car loan that was discharged in a bankruptcy can they still report it as a repossession on your credit report even though the debt is not legally owed?
My guess is that they probably can still list a repo on your credit report. Normally you get a double-hit on your credit report when you surrender property in bankruptcy: you get hit with the bankruptcy (which knocks your credit score down by 75 to 150 points) and you get hit with a repo/foreclosure for the surrendered property. Just because a debt is discharged in bankruptcy doesn't mean that it won't be listed on your…
Can you get a civil judgment removed from your credit report if it was included and discharged in a bankruptcy even if the judgment date is later than the bankruptcy discharge date?
No, debts, liens, judgments incurred after a bankruptcy has been filed cannot be included and therefore cannot be discharged in the BK proceedings.

I believe this judgment can be discharged by filing a discharge request with the court administrator and only then removed from the…
Assuming that you properly listed the debt in your bankruptcy, the creditor should report the balance owed as zero and it should also correct your credit report to show that the debt was discharged in bankruptcy. You should send a certified, return receipt letter (keep a copy) to the credit card company and enclose a copy of your discharge. Demand that they correct this entry on your credit report. If they fail to do so…
Once the bankruptcy has been discharged how do you get the creditors that you filed bankruptcy on to show as satisfied or closed on your credit record?
First, get your discharged letter from the bankruptcy court and send it to the credit agencies. No matter what you have put in your bankruptcy, it will not come off your credit report until the bankruptcy is taking off. Make sure you keep all your bankruptcy records that list all items. Soon as I was discharged from my Chapter 13 the very next day my credit score went up very high. Anyone claiming they can…
