It was suggested I post this here.

I went through a bad divorce about 5 years ago. I have since been able to pay off my outstanding debt and have refinanced my house a number of times. Each time I have worked to clear up errors on my credit report and each time there has been a number of things (that even though cleared up at the time) were not "fixed" on the report and have shown up again. I recently applied for credit and was turned down. The reasons appear to be due to incorrect information (again). I have just requested my free report and plan to try to get these items cleared up (again).

I can't seem to convince the credit bureaus of errors even though I've supplied all the proper documentation. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with these bureaus to get the information corrected? Also, does anyone know of any organizations that regulate, oversee, etc. these agencies? I really don't want to get to the point where I have to sue them just to get the information correct.
