Bad credit or any negative report will remain in your credit report for seven years. Therefore, if it happens that there is a wrong information that will affect your report negatively, be sure to dispute it immediately. You can also do your own credit card repair in order to eliminate any bad credit that will be reflected in your credit report.

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.

You can try to have the accounts removed before the FCRA Compliance Date by contacting the credit bureaus, collection agencies, and original creditors.

By definition, you have 'bad credit' if you pay your debts late or fail to pay them altogether. Therefore, if you have bad credit due to debts, or late payments, and you have no money, there is no way for you to repair your bad credit. But sometimes bad credit can be due to errors on your credit report. If this is the case, obtain a copy of your credit report, notify the credit reporting agency of the errors, and they will check into their accuracy and remove them from your credit report if they find that they are indeed truly errors.
