What do you do if a dismissed chapter 13 bankruptcy is still showing on your credit report after 7 years?

Get an "official" copy of your bankruptcy documents indicating the date that the Bankruptcy was dismissed. Send the official copies to each of the credit bureaus that are reporting the information and request that they update their files accordingly and to forward to you an updated copy of your credit report. The key word here is "request". do not demand, threaten or utilize any form of aggression. just be simple, polite and to the pint with your request This should solve the problem. Both Experian and Transunion remove a dismissed Chapter 13 bankruptcy after 7 years. Equifax's policy is to keep it on the credit report for 10 years.

Between five (5) and six (6) years, depending on how long it took to discharge the chapter 13 bankruptcy.

The average chapter 13 takes 4-5 years to be discharged, leaving about 5 years of having the bankruptcy still on your credit report.

If you filed a Chapter 13 in June 1998 why is it still on your credit report?

Bankruptcy filings may legally remain on a credit report for 10 years. However, it is customary for Chapter 13 bankruptcies to be shielded from view after 7 years. Since your filing is past that ordinary time-frame; you could write a letter of dispute to the bureaus requesting its' removal.

If a chapter 13 bankruptcy was voluntarily dismissed not discharged can it be removed from your credit file?

You can't get it removed. It is a public record. If you file a bankruptcy and get it voluntarily dismissed the next day, it will still be on your credit report. Also, by the way, not paying into a Chapter 13 plan is not a voluntary dismissal. The Trustee moved to have the bankruptcy dismissed. - The easier approach would have been to actually voluntarily have it dismissed. Regarding Nate's posting, I agree that non-payment of a Chapter 13 normally results in the trustee moving to dismiss your case, which is an involuntary dismissal. I have no idea if whether a Chapter 13 is voluntarily or involuntarily dismissed affects your credit rating differently (probably not, credit reporting agencies barely seem to recognize the difference between Chapter 7's and Chapter 13's, much less the way in which any particular case is dismissed), but there can be a big difference to the debtor whether a case is involuntarily or voluntarily dismissed if a creditor has moved to get property back. Once a creditor asks the court for permission to get back some property (such as a car or home), which they do by filing a Motion for Relief from Stay, then if you voluntarily dismiss your case you are barred from re-filing a new Chapter 13 for 180 days. This 180 days may be enough time for the creditor to foreclose/repo and sell the property. Once a creditor moves to repo/foreclose in a Chapter 13, many people prefer to be involuntarily dismissed so they can re-file a new Chapter 13 immediately and get protection again before the creditor sells the collateral. Please keep in mind this is not legal advice but simply a statement of what many people do in that situation from my perspective. So, while Nate (in the posting above) said it is easier to voluntarily dismiss, that does not mean it is always better to voluntarily dismiss, depending on the circumstances.

How long does a bankruptcy stay on your credit report?

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.
