yes you can fix your credit yourself---all it takes is to stay on top of it and taking the time thats needed--first get your credit report from all 3 bureaus--then look them over real close--and then open a dispute on anything that wrong--but to keep it simple--i wouldn't try to dispute every thing at once in one report--spread it out--it'll help you keep up with what your doing and how its helping--but don't try to dispute something you know that right and you just want to try and get it removed-thats not going to happen--once you start your dispute process then its just giving or getting the info thats requested to prove your case--depending on how much you have to dispute will determine how long it will take--when you dispute soemthing the credit bureau has 30 ( it might be 45 ) days to answer you--then you have 2 weeks to reply back--then its another 30 (45 ) days for them to reply back with their decision and you have 2 weeks to either dispute that or accept it---so now you see why it takes time--but if you stay on it--you wil fix your own credit--
