Bankruptcy can actually improve your credit in many cases. Many of our clients with credit scores in the low 500s actually see a 25 to 75 bump in their credit score within 12 months after their discharge. If your credit score is in the 600s, it usually stays about the same 12 months later. And for those folks that have filed with credit scores in the 700s, they have seen a small drop – perhaps as little as 25 to 45 points. Bad credit is caused by having late payments, defaults, collections, and lawsuits. Bankruptcy stops all of those bad hits to your credit thereby allowing your credit score to heal and improve. When we pull your credit reports we will give you an estimated snapshot of where your credit score is today and where it will be 12 months after your bankruptcy is over.
