Tips for Life After Bankruptcy

The fact that you filed Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will be on your credit report for up to 10 years. It also may be a factor in determining whether future credit will be advanced. It is important to put yourself in the best place possible for moving forward. Now that you are debt free, there are some things that you can do to prepare yourself to move forward financially, including:

  • Understanding your financial picture
  • Create a budget or stay on the budget imposed by the court
  • Maintain a savings account
  • Save for your purchases rather than buying on credit
  • Rebuild your credit. Contact us at 1800 STOP DEBT for a brochure that will help you use credit wisely or explain your legal rights during and after bankruptcy.

Second Bankruptcy?

At times there are individuals who fall on misfortune twice. Often they do not go to an attorney because they do not believe that we can do anything for them. However, it is always a good idea to talk to an attorney. There is a chance you may be able to re-file for bankruptcy.
