After Bankruptcy, Keep Your Credit Report Clean
There are three main credit reporting agencies in the United States: TransUnion, Experian and Equifax. They are entrusted with the responsibility of keeping track of consumer credit ratings, but that doesn't mean they're perfect. Credit reporting agencies make mistakes every day.

As a follow-up service for bankruptcy clients, The Golden Law Group examines credit reports for inaccuracies 90 days after their debt has been discharged.

How Credit Report Mistakes Happen
Often, credit reporting agencies don't make timely updates, or they don't receive the information they need to make updates. One common post-bankruptcy error these agencies often make is that they forget to remove an old debt from the credit report. When you apply for a loan, the potential lender will see the old debt, conclude that you are unable to take on a new one, and deny the loan.
The Golden Law Group handles credit report disputes by first sending a letter to request that the error be fixed. If that doesn't work, they file a credit report lawsuit. If the client wins the credit report dispute, then the firm receives a fee from out of the settlement. If the lawsuit is not successful, you pay nothing.
