Will your credit score go up after your chapter 7 bankruptcy passes the 10 year mark?
Adding to below--it shouldn't even be on your report after 7 yrs. Lots of times it drops off before that.

No legitimate commercial lender will grant you credit while you are in a Chapter 7. Any applications will be turned down and will adversely affect your credit score.
