Re: BK Fall Off Date???

Hi all!

 

So when your bankruptcy falls off your score jumps pretty drastically?

 

Is there any way of knowing how much it could jump?

 

Mine falls off October 2016 :smileysad:

 

That will be 3 LONG years!!!

Re: BK Fall Off Date???

There's no way to tell because it depends on what else is in your report.

Re: BK Fall Off Date???

Does the fall off date vary by state?  I was under the impression it was 7 years... if it really 10? I just passed the 7 year mark earlier this year...haven't ordered new reports yet, so I'm not sure if it's gone or not.  I'm gonna be SEVERELY bummed if it's 10 when I was told 7 before :smileysad:

Chapter 7 remains for 10 yrs from date filed. All accounts included in the chapter 7 will be removed from your credit reports at the 7 yr mark. 

Chapter 13 remains only for 7 yrs.

Re: BK Fall Off Date???

So that sounds like (since it was a 7) that the negative score impact will remain for 3 more years even though the "detail" of the accounts involved is now gone. Is that correct?

Re: BK Fall Off Date???

Don't get your hpopes up for score increases.. it really is a YMMV thing.. some have had score jump, other scores have fallen and for me 2 out the 3 so far no score change at all.

Freedom, Mariott ,CSP, SM, QS, BCE,, PSECU, DC Walmart. Maybe someday I will do that cool pic signature thing..
