Credit Repair Attorney in Lake County

Bankruptcy Can Help Improve Your Credit

There is a popular myth that bankruptcy ruins your credit. The opposite is actually the truth. By the time a consumer needs to file bankruptcy, his or her credit score is already at rock bottom. Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 actually has the opposite effect on your credit in the long run. After a small initial dip in your credit score, your unsecured debt will be eliminated so that you can afford your payments again. This debt elimination will allow you to begin rebuilding your credit.

Debunking the Myth that Bankruptcy Ruins Credit

Many clients ask us whether or not they will qualify for credit after filing bankruptcy. The answer is that you most likely will qualify. Most of our clients begin receiving more credit offers after they file bankruptcy than they were receiving before they filed. Banks and lenders know that you need to rebuild your credit and will be much more willing to offer you a secured credit card not very long after you have filed bankruptcy. A Lake County bankruptcy attorney can help you understand what options are available to you for credit repair and can help you eliminate your overwhelming debt so that you can get started.

Consult a Lake County Bankruptcy Attorney

Our firm has helped countless clients find relief from overwhelming debt and rebuild their credit scores from the ground up. We can advise you about how to establish a budget and educate you about using a secured card for basic purchases such as groceries and gas so that you can make your payments on time to begin bringing your credit score back up. By the time bankruptcy no longer appears on your credit report, your credit score could be the best it's ever been!
