Recovering From Bankruptcy
Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy allow you to start over and reestablish your credit. Many people are concerned that just by filing for bankruptcy, their credit score will take a huge hit. However, this is not necessarily true.
Our knowledgeable bankruptcy attorneys at Jimmy E. McElroy & Associates can explain how bankruptcy affects your credit and enables you to make a fresh start.
Are You Worried About Your Credit Score?
Chances are, if you are considering filing for bankruptcy, your credit score is already damaged and continues to decline. Many people are worried that if they file for bankruptcy, they will never be approved for a credit card or personal loan again. This is not the case.
Bankruptcy allows you to eliminate your debt and start regaining credit, allowing you to rebuild your credit score.
You Can Get A Fresh Start
At Jimmy E. McElroy & Associates, our lawyers counsel people on how to live within and even below their means. We recommend that you either do not use credit cards at all or that you use only one card and pay it off every month, on time. You can recover from bankruptcy. It just takes a change in perception and lifestyle. With time, your credit score will improve and you will qualify for loans again.
