If I filed paperwork at the courthouse for a bankruptcy , but ended up not going through with it, how can I get it off my credit report?

Its not impossible, but very unlikely to get removed. Filing for bankruptcy gives you protection from debt collection. When the bankruptcy is dismissed/not completed, you lose that protection from collections. Once you file and its discharged or dismissed, its still going to be on your report for 7-10 years.

Try contacting all 3 credit bureaus to explain the circumstances behind the dismissal and they may be able to take it off your report.
