What Will Happen to My Credit Score?

Post  Admin on Mon Sep 21, 2009 11:24 am

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy case will be reported by credit reporting agencies for ten years. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy case will be reported by credit reporting agencies for seven years. Creditors are sometimes willing to approve credit after bankruptcy because they know that a financial burden has been lifted and that you may now be able to make regular payments on any new debt. Also, they know that if you filed a Chapter 7 proceeding, you will not be able to declare Chapter 7 bankruptcy again for eight more years, so in some ways you are a better credit risk after filing bankruptcy. If you have completed a Chapter 13 plan, then you have demonstrated that you can handle regular payments on your debt obligations. Keep in mind that credit is a privilege, not a right, and some creditors will require an extended period of time after bankruptcy before extending further credit. This is certainly one reason to be cautious about filing bankruptcy.
