Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Unfortunately, the fact that you filed for bankruptcy even if the case was dismissed cannot be erased from the public record. The fact that you filed the bankruptcy case would stay on public record for requisite period of time. In this case, ten years from the date of filing. However, any Credit Reporting Agency reporting the bankruptcy must also report that the case was dismissed.
