Common Questions About Rebuilding Credit After Bankruptcy
Clients frequently ask questions such as these:
How long will a bankruptcy remain on my credit report?
A bankruptcy will appear on your credit report for 10 years, although a Chapter 13
bankruptcy could remain for only seven years.
Will I have to wait 10 years before applying for a credit card?
There are many credit card companies that will approve applications from consumers
who have declared bankruptcy. However, the interest rate will be high and the spending
limit low. You may be able to obtain a secured credit card at a lower rate.
How do I rebuild my credit after bankruptcy?
It's pretty simple: Pay your bills promptly. Get a credit card and pay it off every
month. If you can, take out an installment loan and pay it on time. Get a gas credit
card and pay it off every month. Steps such as these can rapidly rebuild your credit.
