If it has been 19 years and something is still showing on a credit report, you can request to have it removed. Contact the three credit reporting bureaus and ask all of them to remove it for you.
A credit report includes a list of every request for your credit report in the past two years.
If the account is legitimately yours, then you cannot legally have it removed from your credit report. However, if you paid the collection account off, it should be reported as paid on your credit report. Still, the accounts will not be removed from your credit report for 7 years.
Debts included in the bankruptcy should be noted as such in the credit report. The bankruptcy will remain on the credit report for ten years.
Anytime a bankruptcy shows up on a credit report, the credit score associated with such a credit report will be ranked as fair or poor. Four years is still considered "recent" concerning bankruptcy, so poor is the best that one can hope for. Bankruptcies stay on the credit report for ten (10) years.
A foreclosure will typically remain on your credit report for seven years.
Yes. If unpaid it is still enforceable.

Bankruptcy can stay on your credit report for up to 10 years. If you obtain the credit report directly from the credit reporting agency (ie. Equifax, Transunion, Experion) the report will provide you with directions on how to dispute the information.
This will stay on your credit indefinitely until it is paid. Once it is paid, it will show a zero balance, but your credit report will still show that you did have a judgment at one time. It will stay on the report for approximately 7 years.
I've seen accounts listed for years. A bankruptcy will stay on for 10 years. If you have an account that is paid and closed and you want it off of your report you can dispute it with the major credit reporting agencies.
It depends on what you mean. If you have erroneous information on your credit report, contact the credit reporting agency and tell them you want to file a dispute. If you're referring to a negative credit account or report that is in fact accurate, you usually cannot have that removed. Entries on your credit report are removed automatically after 7-10 years depending on what it is.
