Deleting evictions, judgments and bankruptcy from your credit report

Dear Experian,

Is there a way to get an eviction removed? A judgment was filed against me. If a judgment is discharged in your Chapter 7 bankruptcy, can it be removed from your report?

Updating bankruptcy information

Dear Experian,

After a bankruptcy discharge the creditors usually update their entrances, so the debt shows as discharged in bankruptcy. However, they don’t always do that. Can I send you a copy of my discharge and the list of creditors so the report can be updated?

Accounts in bankruptcy are not deleted immediately

Dear Experian,

I just filed bankruptcy and it was discharged in January 2011. I thought that because I filed bankruptcy my bad credit would be taken off my credit report. How come they are all still there but show discharged with Chapter 7?

Why accounts in bankruptcy continue to be part of your credit report

Dear Experian,

Why are the accounts that are under a bankruptcy listed individually? Doesn’t the bankruptcy cover that?
