New to the forum and would like to first say that the information found here is invaluable and helps so many people. Thanks to all who contribute with honesty and factual information.
Bankruptcy was dismissed in 1/2015. My goals is to get back to 750 credit score and be able to invest in real estate in a couple of years. My TU is 668 and EQ is 684 as of yesterday. I have car loan with $5500 left on it and will be paid off this year. $2500 Visa from credit union/0 bal. $3500 Visa from Cap One/ $2300 bal. I also have a $1000 LOC with credit union/0 balance. I am AU on my wife's Amex $10k/0 bal. and I am AU on her Cap One $7k/$100 bal. What should be my next steps to achieve a 750 credit score?? Any advise is greatly appreciated.
There is a BIG difference between an erroneous bankruptcy and a dismissed bankruptcy
It is quite simply: erroneous Vs. dismissed
1 : to permit or cause to leave * dismiss the visitors * Class is dismissed.
2 : to remove from position or service : discharge * dismissed the thievish servant
3: a: to reject serious consideration of * dismissed the thought b: law : to put out of judicial consideration : refuse to hear or hear further in court * dismiss all charges * This case is dismissed.
* I (myself) had a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
I had it because I "filed" for Bankruptcy
It was Discharged by the Court because I PAID in FULL (after 11 months)
Best Wishes on your Rebuild!!!!
I agree with your definitions and my situation is both. I had met with an attorney to discuss if bankruptcy was right for my situation in 2009. I left his office without filing, without paying any money and stated to him "No" I do not want to file bankruptcy. In 2014 returning from chrismas vacation, my credit cards didn't work when returning the rental car to get on my flight back home. Fortunately, I had cash. After 3 weeks of researching what happened, it comes to my knowledge the attorney's staff member, supposedly while cleaning up files came across mine and filed it electronically thinking it was a recent case she had missed. The attorney wrote to the court and all my creditors, but all that happened was that it was dismissed. I contacted the BK Court, all the bureaus, state attorney general, several other malpractice lawyers and NO ONE WOULD HELP GET THE DISMISSAL REMOVED. And I would include the documents in this post, but I can't find a way to do it.
So you tell me if it erroneous or dismissed.
