A CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY TAKES 10 YEARS BEFORE THIS IS REMOVED OFF OF YOUR CREDIT REPORT. THE GOOD NEWS THIS DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR CREDIT ANY LONGER! *********************I filed Chapter 7 in 2003 and depending on what your state court's definition of "dismissed" is it CAN affect your credit. For instance, some courts definition of "dismissed" is the same as "discharged." In Ohio it is "discharged" and I no longer owe any debt, however it DID IN FACT AFFECT MY CREDIT. I can NO LONGER get any. I received denial letters stating the reason for being denied, "Bankruptcy." So do your homework according to your state.

If your first bankruptcy was dismissed and the second one filed but you never made payments for either can they be removed from your credit report?

The second according to my credit report only says filed. My transUnion doesn't show it and I don't have my Experian report. I will have to contact the court I am sure to get the documentation I need. thanks for your input. Your first bankruptcy can be removed, because it was dismissed. A dismissal is a legal disposition of the legal action bankruptcy. The other disposition is discharged. You don't mention what the disposition was of the second bankruptcy. If it was granted, and your debt discharged, but you never paid on it, (was it a chapter 13?) then it is not discharged. You need to find out the correct status of the bankruptcy before this question can be answered.

The credit report entry will state the bankruptcy was filed and dismissed, not discharged.

How do you dispute taking off bankruptcy on your credit report?

THE ONLY POSSIBILTY THAT YOU HAVE ON RESOLVING A BANKRUPTCY IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS IS A DEBT THAT WAS DISMISSED. BANKRUPTCIES TAKE SEVEN YEARS FROM THE DATE THAT IS WAS FILED IN ORDER FOR THIS TO NO LONGER AFFECT YOUR CREDIT RATING. Bankruptcies remain on a credit report ten years from the time of discharge. A dismissed chapter 7 will remain ten years a dismissed chapter 13 will remain seven years. If the time has expired for the bankruptcy to be removed from the CR the person should write a letter containing all pertinent details including a copy of the date of the BK discharge or dismissal. Valid negative information of a credit report cannot be removed until the prescribed time limit has expired. Positive entries will remain an indefinite period of time, in some cases permanently.

If you filed chapter 13 and had it dismissed and paid of the debt is there any way to get it off of your credit report?

No. Filing a bankruptcy creates a public record that does not go away because you did not complete the bankruptcy. - once you file and get a case number you have filed for bankruptcy. if you didn't follow through and it got dismissed is regardless. you still filed for bankruptcy and it will still be on your credit report.
