#Credit Reports and Immigration
Credit reports often contain errors. Do yourself a favor and order a free copy of your credit report at least once a year from all three major credit bureaus, Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian free of charge at https://www.annualcreditreport.com.
If you notice an error, you can write to the credit bureau(s) and dispute the error or contact the creditor that provided the incorrect information or both. Having good credit is always good but particularly if you are applying for adjustment of status as a legal permanent resident (“green card”) in certain immigration categories.
