Rebuilding Your Credit After Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy presents a unique opportunity for people to have a “do over” on their credit history. The downside is that you have to start building your credit again all over. The upside is that your credit was probably already seriously damaged before filing for bankruptcy, so this is the fresh start you were seeking. Most people can be approved for credit as soon as two years after their bankruptcy, as long as they maintain good financial practices.

Some important post-bankruptcy practices include:

  • Paying your bills on time
  • Making a budget and sticking to it
  • Making careful decisions on how to spend your money and avoiding impulsive purchases
