Credit score didn't go up after bankruptcy taken off record
I thought once a bankruptcy came off your credit reports my score would go up, but this hasn't happened. It says the bankruptcy was removed, but my credit score did not change. Why not?

Bk's don't report payment histories, they are just red flags to potential lenders not to finance you. By it being removed it just makes you as a potential consumer look more appealing, try to apply for a small cc and make a few purchaces and pay the balance in full for a few months.... This will increase your score.  It will drop a few more points first and after about 3 months your score will increase a good amount....
