BK on a CR

I've searched these threads, but I havent found what I'm looking for. If it's there I've missed it and apologies in advance. I would think that a BK would show up in the "public records" section of a CR, but what is the format of it? What does it look like? Is it blatantly obvious that it IS a bankruptcy, or does one have to interpret the wording to determine if it is in fact a BK?

Re: BK on a CR

On my credit report they are all listed in a section called Public Records. They are very clear and very informative as to when filed and whether it was discharged or dismissed etc.

It is the very first thing on your credit report. Mine lists it as:

US BKPT CT SC COLUMBIA
Identification Number: XXXXXXXXXXX
Date Filed: July 24, 2002
Status: Chapter 13 bankruptcy discharged.

So yes, it is blatantly obvious.....

Re: BK on a CR

I am having trouble understanding the CH-13 BK on my reports. TU and Experian do not even show it at all. EX shows it as date filed 07/01/2000 - dismissed CH-13 and that is all. We stopped the BK in January of 2001 due to a settlement and being able to pay our small amount of doubt in full  at that time. We only filed b/c my hubby was hurt in an accident and could not work.
 
My question is...does a dismissed CH 13 in TX fall off according to the date filed that is listed on my EX CR?
 
I want to try to get this off, as soon as possible. I am trying very hard to increase my scores. I have had tremendous luck with this forum's help. I have raised my mid-score 36 points in ONE month, due to disputes and pay off's.
 
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks!

Re: BK on a CR

Hi, I believe that you are correct in that is should have fell off of your reports 7 years from the date that it was filed on all of your credit reports regardless of whether it was discharged or dismissed.
I would dispute the last report that has it showing.
Good luck!! Smiley Happy
