Credit scores are calculated and affected by the consumer's overall credit history. After a bankrkupcy entry is expunged the score will eventually improve but a specific answer as to the exact numbers is not possible.

Yes, a Bankruptcy is one of the most damaging accounts which can show up on a credit report. The good news is that after 2 years, the account doesn't impact your credit score as much. Once it is deleted, your credit score is improved.

Credit scores are a calculation based on ALL the information contained in your credit report. Without all the data in your file, it would be impossible to guess the impact.

When you suppress your credit report, that means that anybody who pulls your credit report will get no information back. It will not even give the header that comes on the credit reports. So if you are looking to get some type of credit do not suppress your credit report.

A triple credit report shows your credit score from all three credit reporting agencies: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax.

How many points your credit score will go up after bankruptcy comes off, will depend on where it was beforehand. Your credit score may improve drastically into the 600's, or it may still be low.

Your credit score is determined from the data on your credit report. Most credit reporting sites sell or give away for free a credit score with your credit report. Some site only give away a credit score. So, the answer to your question is, yes, your score generally comes with your credit report but it is not always included.

Although bankruptcy is a genuine path to get out of debt, it leaves a long lasting scar, and comes at a high price financially and emotionally. The financial impact is severe; a bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 7-10 years. You shouldn't consider bankruptcy as a simple "quick fix" to all of your financial difficulties, but rather as one of the many available solutions you may have given your individual situation.

Depends. Some dealerships won't even look at you if you have bankruptcy in your credit history. Others might, but it usually comes at the cost of high interest rates.

No, if anything bankruptcy is information that will add to any form of credit/background or information report. Nothing "comes out"...although some of the items on Chex may be effected, that effect/result would likely be reported. Basically, you live with the past you create and that is what is should be reported.

Knowing your credit report credit score is the first step in securing a mortgage. When you are looking to buy your home, having a current, up-to-date copy of your credit report is essential in securing the best rates. By reviewing your credit report prior to applying for a mortgage, you will be prepared to clear up any past debts or errors on your credit report that could prevent you from getting a mortgage loan. Your loan officer will request a copy of your credit report credit score, so don't be taken by surprise when it comes time to apply for your loan.

It has always been 10 years. Some CRAs will take it off after 7. Bankruptcy has its basis in the Bible. The Bible states 7 years so many places (including CRAs) ignore it after 7. More input from FAQ Farmers: * I don't know for how long, but for at least the past 8 years the rule has been that Chapter 7's are on your credit report for 10 years, and Chapter 13's are on your credit report for 7 years. I think the fact that different chapters affect your credit for a different amount of time is where the confusion comes from.

It is not possible to answer this question without knowing the details of those items. If you remove 6 negative items, the score will increase. If you remove 6 negative items and have no positive items, your score may increase but you may then essentially have no credit instead of bad credit, which places you in the same difficult position when it comes to borrowing. The amount your score will increase depends on your overall credit profile and the type of items being removed.

I am going to stick my neck out and say, Probably Not. I do not think a lending institution would like someone who is making loan decisions to be a delinquent when it comes to their own debts. Most places(financial institutions especially) will run credit checks on perspective employees.

Although filing for bankruptcy essentially ruins your credit for 10 years, it may be your best option if you are in a situation where your debt is increasing while your income is decreasing and you need to stop the cycle. The credit aspect, which will have repurcussions when it comes to trying to buy a house, car, etc in the the future is typically seen as the worst part of filing for bankruptcy.

When you send away for your credit report it comes with an explanation for whatever is on there, It will lists all meaning and how to read the report.

If the account is a joint account (bill comes in both of your names), then yes, it will be reported to both of your credit reports.

Although bankruptcy is a genuine path to get out of debt, it leaves a long lasting scar, and comes at a high price financially and emotionally. The financial impact is severe; a bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 7-10 years. You shouldn't consider bankruptcy as a simple "quick fix" to all of your financial difficulties, but rather as one of the many available solutions you may have given your individual situation. In October 2005, new congressional legislation made filing for bankruptcy more difficult and burdensome. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy could result in higher monthly payments and may last longer than an alternative debt resolution program. If you have questions about bankruptcy or are considering it as an option, we advise you to speak directly to an experienced bankruptcy attorney licensed in your state.

The information comes from your credit history: credit card and loan records, medical bills that have not been paid, student loan records, housing records, etc. that is reported to credit recort companies.

Experian is one of the three major credit reporting agencies that issues credit reports. While the other two, TransUnion and Equifax only issue personal credit reports, Experian issues both business and personal credit reports. Consumers can get a free Experian report once each year. Most experts advise consumers to get their credit reports from all three agencies at least once per year. Not only is this a good idea, but it is free, and you can access all of these reports online. Consumers who have never seen their credit report before may wonder what is contained in the report. Realize that this information comes from the companies with which you do business. Experian is the credit agency that creditors report to; they do not produce the records that comprise your report. In addition, not all companies that you do business with may report to Experian. They will only have the records of the companies that do report to them. Information about each of your accounts that have been reported to the agency will be included in your credit report. This report can contain both positive and negative information. Details such as how much you owe, the monthly payment, whether you pay on time, and how old the account is will be included. In addition, your residential address will be included in your report, along with information detailing who has requested your credit report. Your name, social security number, and employers will also be listed on your credit report. If you have disputed something on your report, this information will be included as well. If you have declared bankruptcy in the last few years, this information will be on your credit report, as well as any civil judgments against you. Experian offers other services in addition to issuing credit reports. For example, if you want your credit score, there is a fee, but you can also obtain this from Experian. They also offer credit monitoring services. Consumers pay a monthly fee for this service, which includes daily monitoring of all three credit reports, in addition to email alerts when anything of importance changes. Another important thing to know about an Experian report is that you can dispute items contained in your credit report online. After requesting a dispute, you will be able to view the status of the dispute and the result once it has been settled. The ability to go through the credit report dispute process online makes the procedure go much faster.

== == Google for Equifax, Experian, Transunion, get their phone number and speak to representative. Tell them that you are not able to access your credit report due to this issue, and they should be able to help you.

I may be wrong about this, but it is my understanding that you CAN'T get a Chapter 13 off your credit report until it automatically comes off 7 years from the date it was filed. But, if it's on there longer than 7 years, you can ask the credit reporting agency to remove it. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is listed on your credit report for 7 years regardless of why the case was filed or whether it was successfully completed or dismissed (and Chapter 7's are on your credit for 10 years). Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person.

The job of the credit agency is to collect information to furnish credit reports on an individual's credit history. Its income comes from selling this information to various business concerns. The credit information is based on monthly accounts that you may have with businesses and on your general payment record. If there is fraudulent information on your report, you may have it corrected by contacting the credit bureau and explaining to them the problem. You can ask the credit to put a "fraud alert" on your record. Under federal law, they must report the fraud.

Bankruptcy information is available from lawyers who specialize in the area. They possess a great deal of knowledge when it comes to bankruptcy. Information about filing for bankruptcy can be found at a local courthouse.
