Yes, a Bankruptcy is one of the most damaging accounts which can show up on a credit report. The good news is that after 2 years, the account doesn't impact your credit score as much. Once it is deleted, your credit score is improved.

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.

The bankruptcy will appear on their credit if you include this card in your bankruptcy. If you leave the card off the bankruptcy, it will not effect their credit.

If your co-signer has declared bankruptcy but you have not and are current on your payments it will affect your credit until the original loan is paid off regardless of what state you are in. Once that loan is paid off and your connection to the other persons credit is severed you will operate on your own credit score.

When a person files for bankruptcy and their case is discharged they can immediately begin rebuilding their credit. It isn't unlikely for a person's credit score to bounce back to 750 or higher within the matter of a couple years.

Bankruptcy should be removed after 6-7 years from discharge, if you have another bankruptcy within 6-7 years, it will take longer to remove or could be permanently on your file

Yes off course. Paying off any debts will increase your credit score.

It depends on what your credit score was before your filed bankruptcy. If your credit score was low before your filed bankruptcy, then after your bankruptcy is discharged, if you send a copy of your Schedules and Discharges records to all three credit bureaus; Trans Union, Experian and Equifax and ask them to zero out all the past due balances now that you do not owe them anymore then your credit score will more than likely be higher than before you filed. Also, your bankruptcy filing is picked up under the Public Records section of your credit report, however, after 12 months the scoring models do not pick up the bankruptcy anymore so it does not effect your score. It is visible on your report for 10 years after a chapter 7 and 7 years after a chapter 13, but not in your score. It is a good idea to open up an account after your bankruptcy discharges so your scores will continue to go up. If you open a credit card, just make sure you do not go over 30% of the limit, and pay it off every month.

If you have n't a sufficient credit score, you don't pay off your credit history. It is impossible.

One's credit score is in a constant state of flux because any change in the credit report results in the bureau automatically recalculating your credit score.

Unpaid medical bills are on your credit score until they are settled with the company that issued the bills or written off of the credit report. This could be for many years if you are making payments on the account or might end more quickly if you have declared bankruptcy.

If the debt that you were sued over, or the judgment itself was included in your bankruptcy, you only need send a copy of your bankruptcy papers to the credit reporting agencies. The judgment will not "come off", but it should get marked "included in bankruptcy" or "discharged through bankruptcy".

first it depends what kind of charge off it is. and your credit score is all up to which credit company your checking your credit on .. there is no real answer to that question.
