Friends and family members who have experienced bankruptcy have talked to us. Unfortunately, bankruptcy has become more common in modern society. Making credit accessible and straightforward is what we strive for. You can improve your credit and your life by learning how to remove bankruptcy from credit reports.

Here’s what you’ll need

If you have been bankrupt for 7-10 years, your credit report will automatically be cleared of the bankruptcy. Is it possible to remove the bankruptcy earlier?

You have a better chance of being approved for a mortgage, car loan, or other type of credit if you avoid bankruptcy. Any type of loan or credit is difficult to obtain following bankruptcy. You may feel even worse after you declare bankruptcy. The process of removing bankruptcy is long and tedious, but it would be worthwhile to try.

Getting Your Credit Report Removed After Bankruptcy

1. Keep track of your credit score

Your credit score will need to be monitored throughout the entire process. Request your credit reports at the beginning of the process. You can find your credit reports at three credit bureaus in the United States. TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax transcripts are needed. Each agency must provide you with these reports upon request. In the past 12 months, you have been entitled to free credit reports from each of the credit bureaus. It’s possible to collect them all at once or over the course of the year.

It is possible to request online, over the telephone or by mail. For specifics on submitting your request and how to respond in the event it is denied, please consult the government site. You might also consider signing up for an online credit monitoring service to keep track of your credit, so you can plan your next steps.

2. Performing a verification check

The credit bureaus will need to verify whether or not your bankruptcy has been verified. Make the same request to each company separately. I need a letter to be sent to you. The credit bureau must respond within 30 days to any dispute. Remember, the process has already begun, so be patient.

The credit bureau usually responds with a statement stating that the court verification was successful. However, this is rarely the case, but if it is, it is to your advantage. Court verification is not always conducted by credit bureaus.

Be sure to ask who they verified it with in the original letter, so that you can move on to the next step quickly.

3. Get in touch with the courts

Having asked the court the same question now, you will want to contact them. If the court verified your bankruptcy, how did they do that?

Ask to see a written statement if the court says they never verified bankruptcy – as is often the case. For more information, visit

4. Provide the credit bureaus with the courts’ response

With a letter asking for the bankruptcy to be removed, send the court’s statement to the credit bureaus. Identify the claims raised by the bureau that they provided false information in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

It should be possible to remove bankruptcy if everything goes well.

5. Continue to follow up

Credit bureaus do not guarantee that they will remove the bankruptcy just because they said they would. Watch your credit closely and reach out to a credit expert if nothing changes. Having a professional follow up on your behalf is advantageous, as they will look out for your future credit.

Here are some helpful tips

To remain calm and rational throughout the entire process, at the very least in writing, is crucial. Requests which do not follow the appropriate procedure are shut down by credit bureaus. Stay technical and factual in your letters and don’t show emotion.

Earlier bankruptcy filings are more likely to be removed. Evaluate whether you have time to wait if your bankruptcy was relatively recent. If your initial attempt is rejected, try again after some time has passed. It may only take a couple of years to get their approval instead of ten.

It is important to remember that everyone’s credit situation differs. Despite my best efforts, there may be some scenarios where it does not work. There is no harm in trying.
