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.

Foreclosures can be removed from your credit report like any other negative item. You must dispute it to the credit bureaus. The credit bureaus will have 30 days to verify the foreclosure or it must be removed from your credit report. With the higher amount of foreclosures lately you have a better chance of it being removed. UPDATE: Actually, you can force Equifax, Experian and TransUnion to remove a Foreclosure from your credit report and you can do it legally using a federal law that is in place. Credit Bureaus MUST have "verifiable proof" of the "foreclosure account" in their files if they are going to report the negative item on your report. The dirty little secret the credit bureaus don't want you to know is that they do not have any "verifiable proof" in their files for any of the negative items on your credit report. The bank that held your mortgage may have this information on file but the credit bureaus don't. If you request the credit bureau to provide you with the "verifiable proof" that they have in their files they will remove the negative from your file.
