A: 7 to 10 years depending on which kind of bankruptcy you filed. Even when you dismiss a bankruptcy like this it can still be reported.

A chapter 7 stays on there for 10 years from the order ending the case. A chapter 13 stays on there for 7 years.

However, since the was over in 2004, it has been more than 7 years, so my guess is that you filed a chapter 7. In that case, it will stay on there until March of 2014.
