Since it is a true and accurate record of a public record, you can't remove it from your credit file.

Once you file bankruptcy, it is like jumping off a cliff as to your credit. Superman cannot come by and swoop in to rescue you. Federal law allows bankruptcy filings to be reported for up to 10 years.

Nope. You can't do that. It will be there for 10 years. You can rehabilitate your credit by getting a secured card and using it wisely.

No. The fact that the case was filed is a historic fact, and the case filing will be reflected in the public records portion of your credit report for up to 10 years.
