Bankruptcy does not erase the negatives from your credit report.  They will remain for at least 7 years, after which time they will fall off.  You need to read the articles on this site so you can get a needed education on how credit works, which is what Credit Karma is here for..

Sibling post is correct... just because you get a bankruptcy granted, it doesn't mean all the negative info magically goes away from your credit report. Bankruptcy only means that you are relieved of an obligation to pay the listed debts (or if Chapter 13, that a partial payment restructuring plan is set and approved).
