A bankruptcy is automatically purged six years from the date you are discharged. However, they only are aware of this discharge date if you sent them a copy of your discharge certificate. If it still shows on their report even after you have sent that certificate then you must contact the credit bureau directly and inform them their records are inaccurate.
