Credit After Bankruptcy Is Not Impossible - Articles Surfing

If you are going to file for bankruptcy, it is true that you will not have very good credit after bankruptcy. However, this does not mean that you will never be able to get loans, and it certainly doesn't mean that you will never have a good credit history again. While it is true that there will be a short period of time during which it will be exceptionally hard to get credit, it is not true that you will have to wait for an entire ten years to get credit after bankruptcy.

For instance, if you do not have a lot of debt on your credit card, or if you have no debt on it at all, you may be able to keep your card. If you do not owe any money at all, then you do not even have to inform your credit card company about the bankruptcy - however, if they do find out that you are going through bankruptcy proceedings it is always possible that they could cancel your card anyway, just to make sure that you do not charge purchases to that card.

Most of the credit card companies will require that you affirm that you still owe money on the card before they will let you keep it. What this means is that you need to state that you will still be responsible for paying back the card balance, even if you have filed for bankruptcy already.

One thing that you should keep in mind is that in the case of credit cards, this may result in very high monthly fees. You can also get new credit after you file for bankruptcy, however, this credit might be very hard to pay off due to the interest fees. If you are at all worried that you will not be able to pay off your credit cards in the future, then you should be wary about jumping right into new credit situations. However, if you are able to pay back your credit cards, then you will be able to start building better credit right away.

Credit after bankruptcy is difficult to achieve, but if you need credit, you should be able to get it - and you may even be able to purchase a house.
