How to Improve Your Credit Score

What can you do about information on your credit report that's correct but damaging to your creditworthiness? Unfortunately, this is more difficult to resolve than simple clerical errors that might have been made on your report. Although there are "credit repair clinics" and "credit doctors" who claim to be able to help you improve your credit rating (for a fee, of course), they can't do much to get correct but negative information off your credit report. The only real solution is to understand how your creditworthiness is measured, and then start acting in a credit-responsible fashion.

As time passes, prior slip ups become less important as you demonstrate that you are now less of a credit risk.
