A dismissed chapter 13 remains on a credit report for 7 years. A dismissed chapter 7 or 11 remains for 10 years. A discharged chapter 7 or 13 or 11 remains for 10 years. If the date for the dismissal or discharge exceeds any of the above time limits then the consumer should contact the credit bureaus by written correspondence requesting the entry be expunged.

This would only be the bankruptcy, not the items included in bankruptcy. You would have to dispute them separately.

If your bankruptcy is going to be removed how many points will your credit score go up?

If you have disputed to have the bankruptcy removed in your dispute letter request your free credit report to be sent to you with the updated information. When a CRA corrects information on your credit report they have to send you a free copy of your credit report showing the updated information. This of course is if you had to dispute to get it removed if it just rolls off on its own you may have to pay for your credit report if you've already gotten your free yaerly report. That depends on a lot of factors. Your credit score is calculated using certain formulas and factors, such as amount of total credit versus credit being used, number of accounts, payment history of current accounts, etc. You're best bet is to obtain your score after you think the bankruptcy has been removed. You'll probably have to pay for it, but it's worth peace of mind.

I know two people who have done it.Basically how credit repair like this works is you, or attorneys you hire, challenge negative marks on your credit report. The Fair Credit Reporting Act - - gives you the right to dispute anything on your credit report. Once the credit reporting agency contacts the creditor to verify the account they have 30 days to respond with verification. If they do not respond the mark is removed. If they do respond you can challenge again and ask for real proof. I don't know the details of what is required but it can get to the point where they have to provide signed contracts, a list of all payments and bills, etc. What usually happens is the creditor does not respond and it is removed. The same is true of a bankruptcy, often the court does not get the information to the credit reporting agency so the bankruptcy is removed.That doesn't mean they can definitely remove a bankruptcy, or anything else. They may or may not. Obviously if the mark on your credit is not accurate it is a lot easier to have taken care of.

It just removes them from your credit reports
