Terry L. :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L. :

The bankruptcy case will stay on your report for 10 years that you filed

Terry L. :

It should drop off automatically

Terry L. :

You can start reestablishing credit the first month after the bankruptcy though.

Terry L. :
