Bankruptcy and Your Credit


- Advertisment -spot_img

Bankruptcy and credit are directly linked to one another.  Credit is how many people run into trouble with their finances, and ironically how they remedy their financial problems at the same time.  

Credit availability and the encompassing pressure to maintain a good credit ranking will often allow lenders to form prejudices.  Many times this can make be the difference between receiving, or being denied, a large loan.

When someone goes bankrupt several things take place.  By filing for bankruptcy you acknowledge that you are not able to pay your debts and must be relieved from having to pay off your unsecured debts.  Unfortunately, this relief from debt comes at a price.  

Declaring you are bankrupt makes you at risk to creditors.  You are less likely to receive extended credit when you need it, and on top of that you will be charged extremely high interest rates.

Fortunately one of the best things about bankruptcy is its ability to restore your credit rating.  

By opening a high interest rate credit card and making regular payments for the first few years after bankruptcy, you will demonstrate that you are willing and able to make payments in a timely fashion.  Eventually your rating will rise and you can have credit available next time you need it.  

This process can be somewhat long, but for those who are willing to work towards the ultimate goal of having good credit, it can be well worth it.
