This is an incorrect assumption that leads many people to avoid filing for bankruptcy. They fear that a bankruptcy will ruin their credit for a long time and that they will not be able to use credit, rebuild their credit or purchase a home in the future. The reality is that the majority of the people who are considering bankruptcy, already have poor credit, due to late payments, repossessions and foreclosures. Further, most people who file for bankruptcy can rebuild their credit to a relatively good level after two years. This depends significantly on what they do after filing for bankruptcy. It is important that you work toward rebuilding your credit after filing for bankruptcy.

UPDATE: Actually, you can force Equifax, Experian and TransUnion to remove a Bankruptcy 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 "bankruptcy" 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 Federal Court that the bankruptcy was filed in 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.
