Check Your Credit Report

In Uncategorized on August 6, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Once you complete your bankruptcy, you need to check your credit report. The report should state that debts were “discharged in bankruptcy.” Sometimes debts discharged in bankruptcy continue to appear as unpaid on the report. What should you do if the debt does not show it was discharged? You need to send a letter to to the credit reporting agency. The letter should dispute the accuracy of the debt. If you don’t, the inaccurate information can lower your credit score. That makes it harder to rebuild your credit standing following bankruptcy.
