If I cosigned for a student loan, will the loan balance show on my credit report, or it will only show on the student’s credit report?
I am interested in a modification on my mortgage loan. I would like to modify my repayment When I asked the bank if a modification would negatively impact my credit scores, I was told that it may be reported to the three credit reporting companies, but that the impact to my credit scores would be up to you. Would a modification, lower monthly payments or deferred payments lower my credit scores?

A bank has a new credit card for those with poor credit. They say you have to put down a $300 deposit, and after that deposit they’ll give you the card. The bank told me it will help me bring up my credit score. Is that true?

We filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in June 2009. The Bankruptcy was never approved or discharged, but was dismissed a few months later. We dealt with all of our creditors individually after that. Does the Chapter 13 stay on our credit report even though it was never approved by the court?
I recently filed a dispute to get the status of my federal student loans changed. They were reported as delinquent because of missed payments. However there was a forbearance put on the account, and after the dispute, the status was updated to transferred/closed. Should my score improve with this update?
