My credit will be ruined for 10 years
While bankruptcy can be reported to credit bureaus for up to 10 years, your credit rating will begin to improve as you re-establish your credit. After filing your case you will normally begin to receive credit card, car loan and other credit offers. As you interact with credit again and show a record of timely payments, your credit score will improve. Your credit score can increase rapidly after a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Many of our clients have improved their credit score to 700 or above within 12 months after filing.
