BK7 Discharged!

I received notice that my Chapter 7 was officially discharged.  What a great feeling to be debt free!

 

What I would like to know is how long do I wait to start the repair process?  Do I sign up for the My Fico product and the three credit scores right away or do I wait a month?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: BK7 Discharged!

If I may ask, when was the last day for your creditors to object to a discharge?

Mine was 2/4 and am waiting patiently for it to come.

Congrats to you and good luck rebuilding!!!!

Congrats on the d/c!!!! Look for the "how to bk to 700 in 24 months" thread so you can get a general outline for rebuilding. It will answer a lot of your questions. Feel free to ask any questions you have. Congrats again

Congrats on your discharge. Start your rebuild now by getting hard copies of all your reports, get all your ducks in a row (all reporting IIB, etc) and then app for some credit. Good luck!

Re: BK7 Discharged!

Last night I signed up through My Fico and got my score, which is a 587.  Then I got my 3 free credit reports and I have about 3 things wrong on each, including 2 balances showing on Transunion.

 

I will be getting some letters written this week.  :smileyhappy:  Looking forward to the new chapter in my life.
