Re: Credit Reporting Time Periods

This is what it says on Equifax.

I am confused as hell by this child support crap and its driving me insane I am currently fighting it but my child support payments are taken out my check automatically and paid on time every month, I even pay more than the original judgment amount to catch up on the arrears but yet they show me every month as 120+ days late

Re: Credit Reporting Time Periods

That's showing a DOFD of 2008. But I'd check the other two. Now ignore the lates....FICO does. In fact, FICO is ignoring that entire TL. Now how lenders view it is a different matter.

Re: Credit Reporting Time Periods

That is what I do not understand with them. I will check the other two but its showing basically as a 15K debt. One lender saw this but I showed her my paycheck stubs and showed where its taken out automatically so they pretty much ignored it

Re: Credit Reporting Time Periods

"When a collection account is paid in full, it will be marked "paid collection" on the credit report."

 

When the creditor or debt collector changes the account status to "paid in full" does that affect your credit score in a positive way?

Welcome to the forums!

 

Unfortunately not under the most common credit scoring models.  

 

That said, there's more than credit scores which go into approving any given application, and there's a world of difference to an underwriter between an open collection (which is a problem) and a paid one which from the underwriters I've talked to is *shrug*.

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Re: Credit Reporting Time Periods

If you are making payments to the debt colllector, they have a statutory requirement under FCRA 623(a)(2) to promptly update the current amount under collection as it is reduced.  Promptly is with their next monthly reporting cycle.  You can file a direct dispute with them, requiring they maintain the accuracy of the currrent balance.

 

As an aside, much discussion is made in prior posts as to the deletion date of OC accounts.

OC accounts themselves have no required deletion date under the FCRA.  Only the individual adverse items reported on the account, such as monthly delinquencies and a charge-off, become excluded under the FCRA. 

 

The account remains unless either specifically deleted by the creditor, or the CRA choses to delete as their internal housekeeping after the account has been close for approx ten years.  Thus, the exclusion of all derogs can still leave the OC account of record, and possibly raise issues with one reviewing your CR as to the ultimate dispostion of any debt that might remain.
