Although filing for bankruptcy may seem like the finale for your credit, there are ways to build it back up. Having a bankruptcy on your financial record lasts about seven years. However, in time it will come off and you can show creditors that you have learned how to handle your finances.
By taking out a small credit card or line of credit and making small purchases on time every time, you can show you are faithful to making payments. As your credit payment history improves, you may be able to be seen in a better light and get better interest rates.
At Ruff & Cohen, we help our clients to use bankruptcy to discharge or reorganize debt and get a new start. We are here to answer your questions and ensure you understand what to expect after filing for bankruptcy. You can rely on us to guide you towards a new financial future.
