Update: Starting Rebuild 6/7/17 Complete, Now in Garden.

So today Pacer shows discharged from my chap 7 filed 3/1/17!

Read through a lot of these posts and decided to start my rebuild process. 

Decided my best course of action is to log my progress so I have a place to look back up and constantly update, while. seeking advice from you great people here.

 

I decided I was going to file and went and talked to a lawyer, they told me to just stop making all payments and file when ready. I was also going through a Divorce so I needed money, I probably should have just kept making minimums but I did not so a lot of my creditors charged-off my accounts since I didnt make payments on anything for 6 months. No collections made it to my credit report before filing so all accounts are listed as IIB/$0. No collections on reports.

Re: Starting Rebuild 6/7/17

Update:

 

In the interest of getting 3 revolvers hopefully. I app'd for a Military Star Card ( I burned them in bk ). I am retired so still eligible for the card.  After reading through the forums I have noticed that they are BK friendly even if you burned them but you have to call to get your SSN unblocked. I called customer support and asked to get my SSN unblocked and the rep told me it is automatic after 90 days from discharge. She also gave me the number to the BK dept ( they don't answer their phones but you leave a message and they call you back in 24-48 hrs). They called me back and removed the block on my SSN no questions even though it's only been 2 weeks. I applied online it said processing and to wait for the mail to arrive with decision and a number to call to check on status. I called the number and they told me I was approved for $3900 SL.

 

I also updated first post with information.

Re: Starting Rebuild 6/7/17

Latest Update:

 

I noticed some of the dates listed on my BK were wrong on my credit reports so I sent a Method of Verification (MOV) letter to all 3 bureaus asking them to send me the records they have on file to verify the information about the BK. To my surpise Equifax just deleted the BK from my report! Waiting for updates to the other bureaus though.

Dont get too excited...Its only gone temporarily, they will verify the true dates with the courts, and then reinsert the BK with all the correct information including your attorneys name,  lol (happened to me 4 yrs ago).  If you happen to be a very very lucky individual who happens to not have it reinserted, then thats awesome.  But...I wouldnt get excited just yet....Smiley Wink
