How long does a bankruptcy notation remain on my report?

I filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy nine years ago in April which was subsequently discharged in August. When does the ten year period expire, from filing or discharge date? Please help! -Jay


A Chapter 7 bankruptcy notation will remain on your report for 10 years, starting from the filing date. A Chapter 13 notation would remain for seven years from the filing date.

Hope this helps,
