After the difficult and complex process of bankruptcy, debtors often wonder when they will stand back up on their feet again. Despite how bleak your financial condition might seem, with time you can be financially secure. After filing for bankruptcy, your credit rating will definitely be affected, but there are things you can do to once again establish your credit.
A consumer credit report stores information about bankruptcy for 7 to 10 years. However, it is possible to have good credit ratings before then.
The longer you maintain in good standing with your creditors once your bankruptcy is completed, the better your chances will be of establishing good credit. You may experience higher interest rates when financing cars or houses after the bankruptcy, but this depends on each individual creditor and their policies.
