This is Maverick. The first lawyer that answered your question. You asked about a "dismissed" chapter 13 as opposed to a "discharged" one. That may account for the difference. I still stand by my answer.
The other expert is technically correct in stating that the FCRA provides for 10 yrs. However, in practice most creditors remove it after 7 years to encourage people to file chapter 13 repayment cases instead of chapter 7 liquidations.
