Life After Bankruptcy

Road to a fresh start after bankruptcyYes, there is life after bankruptcy.

And generally, that financial life is better.

Some things change immediately for the better.

Other aspects of your financial life take a short run hit, and recover over time.

You’ll be surprised at how quickly the bankruptcy filing becomes insignificant in your economic world.


Immediate improvements include no calls from collectors;  no dodging process servers; no worries about your wages being garnished or bank accounts levied.

Odds on, you sleep better.

Going forward

Immediately after your discharge, credit will be available in limited amounts and probably at a higher price than before.

Some elements of your credit score get better on the spot;  others improve over time if you attend to them.
