Bankruptcy And Credit Scores | Rebuilding Credit After Bankruptcy
By the time that most people start to contemplate filing for bankruptcy, they have already struggled to pay their monthly bills for quite some time. If you have been making late payments for quite some time, your credit rating has most likely been considerably damaged already. Moreover, if you are currently unable to pay your debts, you may just be delaying the process of restoring your credit rating.
It is true that bankruptcy will damage your credit rating in the short run. However, many people are able to restore their credit more quickly than they originally anticipated. Many people are able to obtain home loans, car loans and other loans after filing for bankruptcy. The amount of time it takes to restore your credit rating depends on a number of factors, including the timely payment of bills after filing for bankruptcy, your job status, your income, your total debt load and other factors.
Protect Your Future
When meeting with individuals at their free initial consultation, I always encourage them to envision their future. If they are unable to pay their bills currently due to a job loss or unmanageable debt, the key question is if they have reason to believe that their current circumstances will change for the better in the near future.
It is also critical to determine if an individual is faced with the prospect of wage garnishments, home foreclosure, auto repossession, bank levies and other adverse creditor collection efforts. Depending on the nature of your debt problems, choosing not to file for bankruptcy could be financially devastating.
Protect your rights and your future by consulting with me as soon as possible. I can answer your questions, help you understand your options and help you make an informed decision about bankruptcy. If retained as your attorney, I will work hard to seek the debt relief you need.
