with a bankruptcy on your record on top of even a few missed payments afterwards your in trouble theres realy no way to boost your score fast even with an unblemished report it would take 6 months minimum best thing you can do is wait 5 years for the bankruptcy to drop off and start fresh and try not to miss any payments in the meantime even if it means working extra hours getting a 2nd job to cover your bills or if its just forgetfulness on your part set up an auto pay through a bank account best of luck credit isnt for everyone

Not much use to set up auto pay to a bank account if you do not keep and idle funds in the bank to pay it.

The bankruptcy courts don't report you chapter payment monthly on your credit. However, your trustee keeps an updated copy of what you pay each month. Ask your trustee for a copy of what you pay to your creditors through your chapter each month. For each item you have under your chapter, write a dispute letter to the credit bearueas. Let them know that they are misrepresenting your credit file by not disclosing your payment history. Mail a copy of the proof. If they do not comply with adding your payment history to your file, they must remove it from your credit. It will boost your score. I done it, also bought a house while in bk 4 years ago.
