    I filled for bankruptcy 9 1/2 years ago and have a few months left before it comes off my record. I have reestablished my credit since then and it is in good standing. Will my credit score go higher once the BK comes off?

    Yes, when the BK comes off, your credit score should be as if it never happened. Keep in mind, if you open an account somewhere and they ask if you’ve *ever* filed bankruptcy, you still have to say yes. But for the most part, it should be behind you.

    your score should have started recovering 5-6 yr ago – mine was back around 700, 5 yrs after chap 7 discharge – I doubt it will go much higher than it is now just from dropping off if it’s already been 9+ yrs. AND it will be on there for 120 yrs after the DISCHARGE date, not the filing date – my discharge date was 3-4 months after I filed – I’m at about the 8.5 yr mark and my score has probably been in the 680-715 range for the last 4 yrs
