Credit Restoration After Bankruptcy

By Bronson Law Offices   Nov. 28, 2010 6:20p

If you have filed for bankruptcy or are considering bankruptcy, one of your biggest concerns, understandably, is the state of your credit and how you can begin to restore it to a respectable level. It is a prevalent myth that debtors who file for bankruptcy will be unable to recover from their bankruptcy on their credit report, or will be unable to restore their credit for a minimum of 10 years.

In short, this is simply not true. It is much easier to restore your credit than you might believe, and these options are available almost immediately after your debt discharge. While every situation regarding bankruptcy is different, a Westchester County debt relief lawyer will understand that there are a plethora of options available to nearly any debtors that will help them restore their credit.

The most important step to take following and even during the bankruptcy process is to take an extremely proactive stance regarding your finances and your credit. It is entirely possible to restore your credit, which will allow you to purchase vehicles, a home or other large financial investments in the future, but only if you take steps immediately in your spending habits and financial plan that will reflect positively on your credit score. Staying current with your bills by paying them each month, using secured credit cards that you limit purchases on and pay off immediately and eliminating unnecessary expenses in order to save money can all assist in restoring your credit.
