Will Filing for Bankruptcy Ruin my Credit Video

For most people, it’s commonly thought that filing for bankruptcy will ruin their credit. In fact, “Will filing for bankruptcy ruin my credit?” is a question we often get. To answer that question, the team at Kain + Henehan takes a more in-depth look at how bankruptcy affects your credit score and what you can do about it before, during, and after you file for bankruptcy.


” This is probably one of the biggest myths we have is I will never be able to get lending again after I file bankruptcy. My credit score is going to tank all the way to the very bottom. I won’t be able to purchase a house. I won’t be able to get finance for a vehicle. This is the biggest myth I think surrounding bankruptcy because clients rebound quite quickly after a bankruptcy. Usually, I see credit scores fall between 100 and 150 points when people file bankruptcy. There is that drop, but within a year, two years, people are going to be really close to where they were. If you were in the 700s, you’re going to be back there. If you were in the 600s, you’re going to be back there. You are going to be able to get lending. You are going to be able to get finance for a mortgage. Many of my clients are homeowners just two years or so post-bankruptcy. You’ll get car offers immediately after filing bankruptcy. You’ve got to be a little careful with interest rates and that sort of things, but no, you’re not going to be a piranha in the lending world. You’re going to be able to get back out there and do what you need to do in order to move on with your life.

These files may have chatter, direction, production comments, etc. You want these to be clean and ready to publish, so leave all that out. We only want what’s said directly to the camera in answer to the question. Leave out off-topic stuff. Clean up grammar, make it clean. Name the audio file whatever the question is being answered.”

If you were struggling and your credit score was in the lower range, such as the 600s, your score would rebound faster than expected. Contrary to the belief that bankruptcy is a financial death sentence, it is actually a legal lifeline designed to help you discharge debts you cannot repay, rebuild your finances, and restore your credit over time.
