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.

Re: BK on a CR

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!! :smileyhappy:
