How long will it take for bad credit to be taken out of your record?

The date when the derogatory account is going to be removed from your credit report is known as the FCRA Compliance Date. Most derogatory accounts remain on your credit report for 7 years. Although there are exceptions. Chapter 7 bankruptcy accounts will remain on your credit report for 10 years. A tax lien may report indefinitely. You can try to have the accounts removed before the FCRA Compliance Date by contacting the credit bureaus, collection agencies, and original creditors. If you don't know what you are doing you will need to do quite a bit of research on how this process works, or you may hire a professional credit repair company to help you.
