If a bankruptcy does not come off of one's credit report by itself after 10 years, then one can ask the three major credit reporting agencies to do an investigation of the bankruptcy and remove it. To do this, one has to send a written request to each of the three major credit reporting agencies and advise them that the bankruptcy should come off the report. The letter needs a current name, address, and social security number or identification purposes. Along with the letter, the credit reporting agencies will need a copy of some document verifying that it has been at least 10 years from the filing date of the bankruptcy, such as a copy of the file-stamped front page of the Voluntary Petition, a copy of the Notice of Bankruptcy issued by the Court, or a copy of the Discharge. The best addresses I know of (possibly outdated) for each of the three national credit reporting agencies are: Trans Union Corporation ATTN: Public Records Department 555 West Adams Street Chicago, IL 60661 Experian Profile Management P.O. Box 9558 Allen, TX 75013 Equifax P.O. Box 144717 Orlando, FL 32814 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.

Filing bankruptcy does not remove a charge off report from a credit card on your credit report. It just adds bankruptcy to your credit report.


No, the information remains on your credit report.


Yes you can remove a bankruptcy from your credit report. You must dispute it to the credit bureaus using the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The credit bureaus have 30 days to verify the listing or it must be removed from your credit report. A bankruptcy should only be disputed if it is erroneous or inaccurate.


The only way to remove a bankruptcy from your credit report is to dispute it to the credit bureaus. The credit bureaus have 30 days under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, to verify your bankruptcy withe the court that filed it or it must be removed from your credit report.


No, a BK does NOT remove negative items in credit reports.


Not really. Chapter 13 bankruptcy stays on the credit report for seven (7) years (can be ten, but usually seven) and Chapter 7 bankruptcy stays on the credit report for ten (10) years. Once the term is over, you may dispute the bankruptcy with the credit bureau, however, there are no ways to remove the bankruptcy until the term is complete.


The bankruptcy will remain on the credit report until the required ten years has expired. 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.


The fact that you have a repossession on your credit report is not a determining factor of whether your can file for bankruptcy. Generally in bankruptcy you can remove the debts from the repossession of your vehicle.


You can't. A valid entry for a dismissed chapter 13 bankruptcy will remain on a credit report for seven years from the date of dismissal.


No, if property has been foreclosed upon the notation will remain on the credit report for the required amount of time of seven years from date of foreclosure. A bankruptcy remains on the credit report for ten years.


It stays on your credit report for ten long years and they won't remove it.


Bankruptcy. Bankruptcy will not remove a judgment from the debtor's credit report. The judgment will still remain for the required time if it is discharged in bankruptcy, settled or paid in full. Valid judgments remain for the required 7 years. Most judgments are renewable and can be reentered on the debtor's credit report whenever that action is taken.


Contact the credit bureau that has the incorrect information about the bankruptcy. They will contact whomever they need to in order to verify the information or remove it if it is deemed false.


Bankruptcy lowers your credit report.


Life insurance loans are not on your credit report.


If its a mistake- you can dispute it with the credit agencies. If you did in fact declare bk- that you ca do NOTHING about, but should drop from your credit report in 10 years.


It can stay on your personal credit report for up to 10 years, but most credit reporting agencies will remove it after 7.


If there is a bankruptcy filing showing on your credit report and you did not actual file, you should dispute that information with the three credit bureaus. They will then investigate and remove the information if it is inaccurate.


You dont, the courts or credit companies are the only ones that can remove them. Very long process if they allow it and nowadays, they can choose to keep bankruptcy on your credit for 20 years or more.....


The judgment remains as a court record. The credit reporting agencies should report that it has been discharged in bankruptcy. If the bankruptcy remains on your credit report for more than 10 years, you can tell them to remove it.


Bankruptcy may remain on your credit report for up to ten years. However, what is probably more important to you is the impact that bankruptcy will have on your credit options. That depends heavily on how you handle your finances and credit accounts after bankruptcy. Many bankruptcy petitioners who manage their credit carefully and make an effort to rebuild credit are able to qualify for traditional mortgages and car loans within about two years.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.

It should be removed from the credit report in 2009. A bankruptcy remains on a credit report for ten years from date of discharge.


What needs to be done to get bankruptcy off credit repot


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.


You present proof that the repossession never occured. You can dispute it with the credit reporting agency.
