How long will it take to see a change in my credit?
The answer is simple-it varies. It depends on the item you are disputing, the amount of impact it has on your credit and the amount of time the bureau takes. If the bureau becomes aware that an error was made on their side, after 30 days, you will see a change in your credit report.
