FAQ

Q:  How long does the credit restoration process take?
It all depends on how many negative inaccurate, obsolete, misleading or duplicate items are on your credit reports.  It also depends on the credit bureaus properly doing their job by heeding the federal law, Fair Credit Reporting Act.  You will usually see results from all 3 credit bureaus in as little as 35-45 days.  The credit bureaus can respond faster if they gather all of the information back from your creditors in a timely manner, which by law is no more than 30 days.

 

Q:  What guarantee can you give me?

A: We can guarantee that we can improve your credit and credit scores within the 12 months time.  But you must have done at least two rounds of disputes through each of the credit bureaus and not have any new items appear on your credit reports.  We cannot guarantee that a certain item will be deleted or corrected in a certain period of time.  That would be against the law.  We do know that with determination and persistence, and with our experience this process does work.
