Removing items from Credit Report after Bankruptcy

Hello again. I just received a discharge after filing Chapter 7 today.

 

My current Credit Score is 549, and it's showing a lot of negative items. Some accounts say "included in Chapter 7" and some say "Bad debt/collection". Is this normal? Why doesn't it all show as included in Chapter 7?

 

I would like to try and remove some of the negative items. Does anyone have experience disputing items from Credit Report after Bankruptcy? Please advice

 

Thank you.

You're going to see lots of nasty things for a while.  I would give it at least 30 days for the things that show as bad debt to show that they were included in bankruptcy.

 

Congratulations on your discharge and happy rebuilding!

Hello-

 

Yes I filed in April 2011. I pulled my credit report in March 2012 and found out all accounts where not showing "included in the bankruptcy. I disputed them all and this was the outcome.

Congratulations on your discharge.  I waited a month to let my bankruptcy to show up on my credit reports.  I'm still working on cleaning up my credit reports.
