What You Can Expect After Bankruptcy

Jan 24, 2008
The opinion is still wide spread that bankruptcy is a dooming choice that will haunt you years after you file. In all actuality you are not doomed forever more but are instead under a watchful eye from creditors for up to ten years from filing a chapter 7 claim and seven years from a chapter 13 claim.

Though your bankruptcy is in-fact public record and does remain on your credit report for a set time period this does not mean you are doomed when it comes to credit. You will see that offers for credit cards as well as loans will be sent to you shortly after you file bankruptcy. The key is to understand the consequences of accepting said loans or credit cards with the awareness or the ability or inability to make payments.

There are good and bad aspects associated with the filing of bankruptcy. Some positive aspects to consider are as follows:

Rids unsecured debt
Stops foreclosure
Stops repossession
Stops garnishments
Stops utility shut off

Some of the negative aspects that you should keep in focus include difficulty in the following areas:

Acquiring credit
Buying a home
Getting life insurance
Job hire

You should also be aware that payments towards child support, alimony, fines, taxes and some student loans are not eligible for discharge and exempt assets vary between states. These payments will be required to continue and a payment plan should be set in place alongside of a sturdily planned personal budget. Your bankruptcy should be taken as a fresh start to begin life on the proper financial path. Creating a budget and or payment plans will allow you to use your fresh start in the way it was originally intended to be when bankruptcy was set in place.

You may be unsure of where your life is heading after filing bankruptcy. It can be a scary and unsure time in your life, but one that you want to get over. You may even be able to start rebuilding your credit for the future. Choosing to work with qualified lenders may be the best place to start in rebuilding your future. They will be able to help you set up a solution to your situation that will help you regain your confidence and the ability to work harder to secure your financial security in the future, without returning to the same situation.

If you are unsure if you qualify to file bankruptcy, many qualified lenders have a free bankruptcy evaluation that you can fill out to help you decide if filing is what you need. Having someone to turn to in your time of need can help alleviate the worry and stress that you have over being able to pay your bills or about losing some of your property. A qualified lender can make you feel much better and brighten your outlook for your future and the future of your family. Security is knowing that you have someone who is looking out for your best interests at all times.

As long as you see bankruptcy for what it truly is and that you have previously reviewed all of your debt relief options, then you are making the right choice. If you have already filed bankruptcy, knowing what to really expect afterwards will allow you to move forward into a healthy financial future.
