Answer:

The Duration of a Bankruptcy on Your Credit Report I got a phone call the other day from a potential client wanting to file for bankruptcy. One of the big questions that a lot of people have and is foremost in their concerns is, “How long does a bankruptcy stay on my credit report?” It would depend on the type of bankruptcy filed. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy will reflect on your credit report for up to ten years, and a Chapter 13 for seven years. During that time, it’s important to know that your credit health will improve, your credit score will improve, and you can actually be approved for a mortgage or a car loan within two years.
