The bankruptcy is not discharged. Your debt obligation is discharged. The discharge notice usually is mailed to you about 6 weeks after the 341 meeting. The filing of bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for 10 years from the date of filing.

:A bankruptcy under chapter 7 or 11, or a non-discharged or dismissed chapter 13 bankruptcy generally remains on your credit file for 10 years from the date filed. A discharged chapter 13 bankruptcy generally remains on your credit file for 7 years from the date filed.


The amount of time a bankruptcy stays on your credit report after discharge differs between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the Chapter 7 stays on your credit report for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, after discharge, it shows for 7 years on your credit report.


The debt should be identified as being in bankruptcy or discharged in bankruptcy. It will remain on the list for 7 years. The bankruptcy will remain on the report for 10 years.


Bankruptcy does not get discharged. Debts are discharged. The bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for 10 years from the date of filing. The debts that were discharged can remain for 7 years from the date of discharge, showing a zero balance and that they were discharged in bankruptcy.


No. What will happen is all the defaulted accounts listed in the bankruptcy will be marked as such.."included in bankruptcy". The credit history, late payments, judgments, etc. will remain the same. In addition to the scenario in the above answer: The bankruptcy filing itself will be listed in the "public records" portion of your credit report. The disposition needs to be listed also (the discharge). The "bad marks" (i.e., the accounts) will show on your credit for 7 years. The bankruptcy listing will show for 7 years for a completed and discharged Chapter 13 bankruptcy and 10 years for a discharged Chapter 7.



Yes, discharged debts are generally noted as "included in bankruptcy" on a CR.


Between five (5) and six (6) years, depending on how long it took to discharge the chapter 13 bankruptcy. Generally a total of ten (10) years after the bankruptcy appears on your credit report is required before applying for prime credit. The average chapter 13 takes 4-5 years to be discharged, leaving about 5 years of having the bankruptcy still on your credit report.


No once filed on file. * A dismissed or discharged chapter 7 will remain on a credit report for ten years. A dismissed or completed chapter 13 will remain on a credit report for 7 years.


Getting a loan after bankruptcy can be difficult depending on what type of bankruptcy one files. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy, one cannot even apply for credit during the length of the bankruptcy. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, that is a different story. One can file Chapter 7 bankruptcy and as soon as it is discharged can apply for credit. The only problem with getting a loan after bankruptcy is that you may have to have a co-signer until you build up some positive credit.


It should rotate off of your credit report about 7 years after being discharged. It cannot be removed.


Not if the debt was discharged in the bankruptcy. If the judgment was on the credit report before the bankruptcy was filed and/or was discharged in the bankruptcy, the entry will still remain on the CR for seven years.


Accounts stay on your credit history for seven years. Bankruptcies stay on for ten. * New bankruptcy reform laws have no bearing on credit reportage. A discharged chapter 7 or 13 remain on the report for 10 years from discharge date. A dismissed chapter 7 remains for 10 years and a dismissed chapter 13 remains for 7 years.


They go by when it was filed--not discharged. Legally, the answer is 10 years from filing; however, some credit bureaus remove Chapter 13 after 7 years.


Bankruptcies are a matter of public record and this is why they appear in credit histories. A Chapter 13 listing will remain on your credit report for seven years from the filing date and a Chapter 7 will remain on the credit report for 10 years from the filing date. The credit report entry will state the bankruptcy was filed and dismissed, not discharged.


If a loan from a credit union has been discharged in bankruptcy court, that credit union cannot collect and must write the loan off.



Yes, it will show as included in bankruptcy and also foreclosure. You get a double whammy. Sorry probably not what you wanted to hear.



A chapter 13 Bankruptcy, dismissed, discharged, or otherwise, stays on your credit report for 7 years from the date it was filed.


Most likely, yes. One of the biggest effects that filing for bankruptcy has is on your credit. Bankruptcy will stay with your credit for roughly 10 years and because of that your score will decrease, at least initially.


The time limit for a discharged chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy to remain on a credit report has always been 10 years. A dismissed chapter 7 wil remain 10 years, a dismissed chapter 13 will remain 7 years.

The debts which were wiped out in bankruptcy still stay on your credit report, but they should be listed as "Discharged in bankruptcy." They will still stay on your credit for 7 years (they don't get extended to 10 years like the Chapter 7 just because they were discharged in bankruptcy). 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.
