Will Chapter 13 REALLY fall off of my CR in 7 years???

Okay...not sure I'm posting my question in the right forum.  I am a complete newbie.  The question I have is for anyone out there who has actually filed a chapter 13 and had it fall off of their credit report.  I have read that a chapter 13 should fall off in 7 years.  We filed ours May 1st. 2001 and completed it May 1st. 2004.  Will this actually fall off May of 2008, and if so...how much can I expect for this to effect my Fico score.  Thanks for any help.

yes   Im not sure how it will effect your scores now....I think the effect gets less each year & now might not mean much..

Thanks Happy Days...Does it happen instantanously, or will I need to do anything?  How much will my credit score increase?

As long as the CRAs are reporting your bankruptcy as discharged it should fall off 7 years from the date you filed it.  I saw a 60-80 pt increase once mine fell off

Thanks...that's good news for sure.  Did your's fall off exactly 7 years from the month you filed, or did it take a few months?

Actually it fell off a month earlier for EX & EQ.  It was TU I had to fight with because they didn't have it as discharged even though the date it was was on my report
