Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
I am unaware of the period ever being 7 years. As far back as 1990, a credit reporting agency could show a bankruptcy for up to 10 years. Then, like today, many credit reporting agencies would remove it after seven. However, it is not required to be removed until 10 years have passed.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
