Fix Credit After Bankruptcy

Credit Report ErrorsTo fix credit report errors after bankruptcy, write a dispute letter to the credit reporting agencies.

View a sample dispute letter. You can view your credit reports for free each year after you file bankruptcy.

No debts from before you filed bankruptcy should say currently past due or delinquent. All of your debts from before bankruptcy should say “included in bankruptcy” or something similar.

Creditors cannot pull your credit report for no reason after learning you filed bankruptcy. Check your credit report for inquiries after bankruptcy. Your bankruptcy will stay on your credit report for up to ten years. Most debts should drop off your credit report about seven years after your first missed payment.
