If i was garnished for an item in collections, when will it be removed from my credit report?
It still comes up as an open collection for the full amount that has been garnished. I disputed it and the results came back and said meets FCRA requirements. Any tips/advice?

Paid or paying in itself isn't ground for removal. Now if your reason for dispute was it's paid/paying so that collection account should be closed or less amount owed?then It would be update to such and won't be deleted. Collection paid or not, can last in your report for up to 7 1/2 years from Date Of First Delinquency. Of courses at times? people do have some luck having it removed by simply disputing but it usually is exception than the rule.

I'm afraid you're going to have to wait it out... that means 7 years.
