How often does the credit bureau update beacon scores and by how many points?
Credit bureaus don't update your credit scores. They update your credit reports. It is a third party company (FICO, Beacon) who processes the information on your credit reports and produces your credit scores.
I have continuous real-time access to my Equifax score, and it updated once at the end of February, and then increased by a point in Mid-March. So I'm going to say twice a month based on my experience with accessing my Equifax Fico Score. I can't be certain about the other two bureaus.
Basic credit information is reported and updated (usually once a month, sometimes less frequently) by the creditors. Your credit score is a calculation based on that data. The calculation is only performed when a score is requested. So, your score would be updated only upon request.
A credit score derived from the application of a credit scoring model created by the Fair, Isaac Company to a consumer's credit file held by a credit reporting company. FICO® scores range from 300 to 850, but almost all consumers have a score between the 600s and 700s. A beacon score of 680 is considered to be falls into the 'Good' category by 5 points.

You had a judgment deleted from your credit report due to a misunderstanding with the credit bureau how many points will your credit score increase?
It depends on other factors of your credit report--but I have seen personally a FICO score increase 140 points once a judgment has been removed. Here are the scoring factors and their weights on a FICO scores: Payment History 35%, Amount of Credit Owing 30%, Length of Credit History 15%, New Credit 10%, and Type of credit in use 10%. Because these factors are considered, it depends. I would say from 50-150.
Yes. There are three (3) credit bureaus and each of them have a different algorithm for computing a credit score. A FICO score is a branded score that comes from Fair Issac Company and is generally used as in input to credit bureau scoring. Having such vastly different scores, however, is more likely to come from having different information in the different credit files. Sometimes lenders only report to two (2) of the credit bureaus…
credit scores update whenever there is activity on you credit bureau. ie) usually update whenever a creditor updates thier information, usually after the billing date of the credit card. a merchant/lender inquiry made on your file (except when you request your own personal file from the credit bureau) any unpaid collections bankruptcy etc.
If a credit bureau does not have a credit score for you, it is usually because they do not have enough credit information about you on file to give you a score. This usually occurs when you have not had traditional credit accounts such as credit cards or mortgages with banks that report to the credit bureaus.

If you pay off your spouse's debts before you get married would that improve your joint credit rating?
There is no such thing as a joint credit rating or joint credit score. Even when two people apply for credit together, their credit is pulled and scores are provided separately. These two separate reports can be merged into one single credit report, but look closely; you will still see separate scores on each bureau for them.
I just purchased a 3in1 credit monitoring report and the credit scores that I got from them are different lower than ones purchased from the credit agencies in the same month Why?
The only reason may be timing. It is possible that between purchasing the 3in1 service and receiving the scores from the bureaus that updates or changes were made to your credit report. Sometime it takes a few months for changes to get to a credit bureau and be incorporated into one's credit report.
For a tri-merge credit report pulled from a credit bureau, inquires for only the last 90 days are reported. This shows potential creditors how much shopping for credit you've done over this period. Extensive inquiries can affect FICO scores (Fair Isaac & CO) know as credit scores. TaxMan/MortgageMan
First, it is important to understand that credit scores aren't recorded and tracked by the credit bureaus. They are calculated against the most current "snap-shot' of your credit profile (credit report) and provided to you. There are many credit scoring systems. Each credit bureau has their own credit score and there are many third party ones - some less known than others. Also, many large lending institutions use their own proprietary scoring systems.
If your father is the borrower on an auto loan and you're the co-signer and his credit was better but you're making the payments why is it not helping your credit with the credit agencies?
Credit scores are based upon the overall credit history of the consumer. Therefore it is not possible to calculate exactly how many points might be deducted for a specific reason. Needless to say all negative reporting is harmful to a person's credit, some do, however, have a larger and lengthy impact.
Child support does not cost fico points unless it is been rated as a collection or a judgement. I can't say there is a "No."--if it is being reported badly--the scores will lower several points. But remember--if you are paying as agreed all the other credit, not over limits on any charge card and not over extented--then those points will cancel out some of the bad points.
Not sure why you are even asking. With credit scores (FICO, not Vantage Scores) of 300 - 850, you want to have your credit scores at least over 640+. If you can get them to over 700+, your payments would be so much lower. Research what the difference of payments are if your credit scores are higher and much lower.
