I had a Chapter 13 bankruptcy that was not discharged. Instead, it was voluntarily dismissed. Am I still able to remove it from my credit file?

The Chapter 13 filing, whether a discharge is received or the case is dismissed, can be reported for 7 years on your credit report. Feel free to contact us to file a new Chapter 13.

I do not believe so. The credit report should show it was dismissed, but it is appropriate for them to show you filed a bankruptcy case, because you did. As long as the credit report is accurate, I don't think there's a basis to remove it. That having been said, I am by no means an expert on credit repair.

No. It is part of your credit history.
