How quickly does bankruptcy show up on a credit report?

Does it show up as soon as you set things in motion with the lawyer, or after you have your court hearing? Just curious, since I've started getting letters in the mail about getting car loans with bankruptcy and the like.

    It shows up when the court grants the bankruptcy. If it's a chapter 7, it will show up when it is discharged. If it's a chapter 13 plan, it will show up as soon as the plan is accepted by the court.

    The letters you are getting have nothing to do with what shows on your credit report. There are all sorts of companies that use the public records to gather names and addresses for mailing lists. Just filing the bankruptcy would put you on mailing lists.
