Bankruptcy Help For Everyday People

Getting Credit After Bankruptcy

One of the biggest concerns for people considering bankruptcy is the possibility of not being able to obtain credit in the future, and it is a valid concern.

We live in a world that depends on credit. Homes, cars and other essential items for life in the modern world are simply too expensive to obtain without borrowing. However, lenders are reluctant to loan money to people with poor credit history.

It is possible to rebuild your credit after bankruptcy. Contact the Durham bankruptcy lawyers of Wootton & Wootton, for a free consultation to discuss your bankruptcy options.

Getting Credit After Bankruptcy In North Carolina

Yes, it is possible to rebuild your credit after filing for bankruptcy. In fact, you can buy a home in the future if you rebuild your credit carefully.

Although your credit rating will take an initial hit in bankruptcy, in the long run, filing for bankruptcy can help build your credit:

  • It looks good to potential lenders that you are getting rid of your other debts.
  • Since you cannot file for a second bankruptcy for a certain number of years, creditors know that you will not be able to discharge debts for a while.
  • With the fresh start that bankruptcy provides, you will be able to manage your debts more effectively in the future.

Talk with an attorney from our firm. We will help you through the entire Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy process and find ways to rebuild your credit after bankruptcy.
