Bankruptcy off my credit report
My bankruptcy was finalized in Sept. 2003 (more than 10 years ago). Shouldn't it have been removed from my credit report by now?

The negative marks do not always fall off your record.  Write to each of the bureaus and have ask them to remove it by filing a dispute.  They will take it off

Wow, what a bummer. :-(  Due to the mental, emotional and physical agony I was in at the time of my injury, I thought that I'd filed for bankruptcy 11 years ago. Signed up for CK today and find I filed only 7 years ago.  Ah well, almost there!
