Credit Restoration After Bankruptcy
Once you have successfully filed for bankruptcy, it is time to take your next step: the restoration of your credit. It is not difficult to improve your credit health, but it does take time. One of the first steps you should take is that of staying current on any existing financial obligations that you possess, such as a home or vehicle loan. By making timely and consistent payments on these obligations, your credit score will improve. Another beneficial action is to create a budget for yourself. This will help you live within your means and avoid the possibility of amassing overwhelming debt once again.
Finally, it is recommended that you obtain a copy of your credit report some months after your bankruptcy to see that it is accurate. Credit report errors are relatively common and can result in higher interest rates for credit or loans that you obtain, or denials when you apply to borrow money. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) gives you the ability to contact the major credit reporting agencies and dispute any items on your record that you feel are in error. A professional attorney can assist you in taking action to correct mistakes on your report, and move one step closer to the full restoration of your credit.
