Chapter 13 Should Fall Off in February 2014

I have seen several different posts from different people that stated their BK fell off early.  Is that the norm or did they just get lucky???  I 'think' I would love for mine to fall off early.  I know that sounds strange, but I have a feeling I may be rebucketed when it does fall off.  I have no unpaid collections or write offs, no lates, so I kind of wonder if the rebucketing will occur when the BK falls off.  If anyone has any input, I would love to hear from you. Thanks

I just had a bk13 fall off early I just posted. It was not due to fall until at least Oct.


Yes, you will be rebucketted when all your negatives fall off. This part I am not looking forward to since I have an old credit card that will fall thus lowering my AAoA by an extreme amount I think.


Forgot to mention, its still on only one of my reports, Equifax. TU it is gone, but I think the credit repair company had something to do with its removal. Experian is the one it most recently fell off of on its own.

Good thing with being rebucketted is that now you can obtain higher scores.  You take a hit initially but can recover much quicker.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
