Credit Restoration Process
- How Long Does It Take for the Process?
Everyone's credit situation is different, so how long does it take for you to achieve your expected results depending on the number of derogatory credit items on your reports. Your participation in getting credit reports to us, and the level of credit bureau's cooperation. We will do our part, the auditing and creating dispute letters based on each individual report, usually within 48 hours from the date we receive them. Most of the wait-time after is usually spent waiting for the credit bureaus or creditors to respond. back to top
- How Much Will It Increase My Credit Score?
Many of our satisfied clients have seen an increase of 100 points or more. However, the actual amount will vary per customer. There are many factors that affect a credit score besides derogatory items. For example, the ability to pay down revolving debt, the type of credit you have, your length of credit history, even the number of inquiries on your credit file. It is especially important that no current accounts fall into a negative status. back to top

- Will I Get A Respond From The Credit Bureaus From The Disputes I Send?
The credit bureaus are required by law to respond to all correspondence. It is not uncommon for credit agencies to send letters stating they want more information, or that they will not re-verify an account. These types of responses are very common and customers should not be alarmed if they receive them. Customers must continue to send all correspondence they receive from the agencies to the processing center. back to top

At that time, you will see what was deleted and will need to mail the original to us so that we can continue working with the remaining items. You will actually know what was deleted before we do, which is why it is so important that you forward all correspondence from all credit bureaus within a few days of receiving it. If the credit agency does not respond to your dispute letter, do not be alarmed, a new dispute letter will be generated when your file is reviewed by the processing center every 60 days. back to top

- Will My Credit Score Change If I Open or Close Credit Accounts?
At first glance, it may seem like a good idea to close old credit accounts or open a host of new ones. But its not. More accounts can hurt, not help. Financial experts agree that you should not open multiple new accounts just to show a credit history. If you have had little credit in the past, build your credit history slowly. Open no more than one or two accounts initially. Also, don't close your old accounts. A long credit history has a positive impact on your credit score. Having a large number of accounts in good standing with zeo balances is a plus, not a negative. back to top
