Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act information can be included in your credit reports for seven years. But there are exceptions to this rule: . Information about criminal convictions may be reported without any time limitation. . Bankruptcy information may be reported for 10 years. . Informa…tion reported in response to an application for a job with a salary of more than $75,000 has no time limit. . Information reported because of an application for more than $150,000 worth of credit or life insurance has no time limit. . Information about a lawsuit or an unpaid judgment against you can be reported for seven years or until the statute of limitations runs out, whichever is longer. Here is more input: . The seven year statute of limitations on information listed on your credit report figures from the date of last activity. . According to the FCR Act Section 605 a debt can remain on a credit report for 7 years and 180 days after the delinquency that caused the account to go bad. Sometimes creditors will sell their bad accounts or post information on the credit report to show an activity date that is less than 7 years. THIS IS PROHIBITED. (I ended up having a judgment removed, the collection accounts removed, and the original creditor account removed.) In short, the time clock starts on the month the original delinquency started by the original account, regardless of whether the account has been sold to a collection agency, was paid at a later date, or a judgment was placed. The FTC has ruled this to be the law when it comes to time periods. If the credit reporting agencies are showing an account on your record that originally went bad more than seven years ago, regardless of date of last activity, dispute the information and they will have to remove it. The reasoning behind this is similar to chapter 13 bankruptcy which stays on your credit for just 7 years instead of chapter 7. The courts have ruled if you did not file a bankruptcy and had several bad credit items they would strictly fall in under the chapter 13 guidelines. I ended up paying on debts that were less than 7 years old and had all the collections, judgments, and original creditors of more than 7 years removed. Even though the judgment was only 2 years old and unpaid and the collection account was only 3 years old, they were still bound to the time line of the original creditor. This regulation prevents accounts from staying on your credit forever. ( Full Answer )
Depends on how it was filed, but the judgment itself is valid a minimum of 5 years once it is awarded. Details can be found at http://www.sunbiz.org/corpweb/inquiry/jlien_how_to.html The length of time a judgment may show on your credit report is established by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, a fede…ral law. FCRA 15 USC 1681c, Sec. 605, reads: "(a) Information excluded from consumer reports...(2) civil judgments...that from date of entry, antedate the report by more than seven years or until the governing statute of limiations has expired, whichever is the longer period." Certain states allow a judgment to be renewed. In Florida, a judgment is valid for 20 yeas, but must be re-recorded after the first 10 years. The re-recording could possibly trigger the judgment to appear on a consumers credit report. ( Full Answer )

This limitation is based on the state where the judgement was issued. ( Full Answer )
Repo on Your Credit It stays on your credit report for 7 years to the day the loan became delinquent. Say you made your last complete up to date car payment August 15, 2001 and you fell behind about a month after that staying one month behind until December when you missed another payment becoming… 2 months behind. The repossession then occurred in January 2003. This will stay on the credit report until September of 2008 for that 7 year period, regardless of when the loan winds up getting paid off. It can stay on the report a bit longer if it goes to court and the bank gets a judgment against the borrower. Say this happens in 2004, then that stays on the credit report another 7 years until 2011. Bankruptcies stay on 10 years while delinquencies and defaults stay on for 7 years. More Information: . Seven years, unless you're applying for a high-paying job or a very large loan or life insurance policy, in which case the repossession will always be reported. . Repossessions and all other notations remain on credit reports for seven years from the date of last payment IF there is no judgment on the account. In the event of judgment it remains for ten years after the date of last payment or the date of judgment (whichever is later), and can be extended for ten additional years in some circumstances. . Occasionally, errors are made by the credit reporting agencies, and notations on reports may remain longer than they should. In the event of an unfair or erroneous reporting, contact the credit reporting agencies involved by registered letter. Corrections must be made within thirty days of contact. Be prepared to provide support for your request to make corrections to your credit reports. Generally though, no information older than seven to ten years should ever appear on a credit report unless ordered there by the courts. . For reference, please consult the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. . For debts that have gone to a collection agency, be aware that any contact, letters, phone calls etc to that agency, can set a new date on your credit file. ( Full Answer )

How long does a judgment stay on your credit report in Florida and should you be given a court date to go before a judge before one was issued?
The Fair Credit Reporting Act, a federal law, establishes the statute of limitations for judgments as 7 years from the date it was rendered. You can research Florida law to see if there is any overriding statute that extends that reporting period. Plaintiffs do have the obligation to serve papers to… a defendant. However, creditors are not obligated to go beyond all reasonable means to find the consumer, only to make a "good faith" effort. So if the judgment was filed by a creditor with an old address, or a collection agency that does not have good contact information, they may have attempted to serve you and been unable to. There are certain conditions under which a judgment can be renewed and continue on file in excess of 7 years. These are also determined by state law. Plaintiffs who are granted a judgment by the court are able to garnish wages, attach bank accounts, and place a lien against property. You should also be aware that paying a judgment is not necessarily the end of this matter. Judgments, being legal actions, need a legal disposition. The proper disposition is a dismissal (order to vacate) or a satisfaction of judgment. If you were able to pay the judgment off today, you would need to take the process two steps further; go before the court and get a satisfaction granted and have that disposition recorded. It would also be a good idea to send a copy of the disposition to all three credit bureaus. ( Full Answer )
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy may display on your credit for 10 years from the date of filing. Chapter 13 may stay for 10 years also, but it is customary for those to be removed after 7 years. Here is more specific advice and input from various contributors: All discharged bankruptcies whether a state …or federal filing remain on a CR for 10 years. A dismissed chapter 13 remains for 7 years from date filed, a dismissed chapter 7 remains for 10 years from date filed. Chapt.7-11-12 will remain for ten years. A chapter 13 will remain for seven years from date filed if successfully completed, for 10 years from date filed if dismissed. Ten (10) years from date filed for a discharged chapter 7 or 13. 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. They may not give you the best rate, but if you have good present income, even a person with a bankruptcy on their record can get the credit they want in almost all cases. You will not qualify for a FHA until a chapter 7 has be discharged for 2 years. A chapter 13, you will only have to wait a minimum of 1 year from filing date. Seven years in Australia Details of a bankruptcy order in the UK will stay on your credit file for 6 years. 7 to 10 years depending on the state you live in. Most lenders will consider loans after 2 years. If information is still on you credit history after this time frame you need to dispute with all three major credit bureau agencies. ( Full Answer )

Credit bureaus contract agencies to search public records. The judgment is then reported to the credit bureau and the notation is placed in the file of the judgment debtor.

If no judgment is obtained, the notation will remain for seven years from the date of last payment. In the event of a judgment, it will remain for ten years. ( Full Answer )
