When you file bankruptcy, your credit will probably be at an all time low. However, it will start to improve after a few months as long as you are able to pay your bills. This is what our clients tell us:

  • About six months, they were able to finance a car
  • About two years, they were able to qualify for a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) home mortgage

After you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy it will be a challenge for you to stay away from the credit card applications that will be mailed to you.
