If you participated in a bankruptcy then it will remain on your record for the term of 7 years for Chapter 13 and 10 years for Chapter 7.   You cannot dispute a bankruptcy unless you didn't have one and it was reported incorrectly.

Sounds like a court ordered bankruptcy in order to get debts paid because payment wasn't being made as agreed. There really is nothing you can do about that but go along with it.  I recommend reading the articles on this site since everyone needs to fully understand how credit actually works.
