Why Bankruptcy Can Help Improve Your Credit

One of the main reasons people are afraid to file for bankruptcy is the misleading claim by credit companies that filing for bankruptcy will ruin your credit. The reality is that the opposite is true for people who are in over their heads in debt. Filing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Dallas, Texas, will erase most if not all of your debt and help give you a clean start in rebuilding your credit.

Additionally, when you have no excess credit card debt or other financial obligations there will be no more late payments on your credit report because your debt has been eliminated. And with the new credit card law, Credit CARD Act of 2009*, and careful management of your finances you should be able to rebuild your credit in a few years.

Although lenders will be able to see the bankruptcy on your credit report, they will primarily focus on the last 2-3 years of your credit history when extending credit.
