I help clients to get their debts wiped out, but this is not the end of the story. You will need to rebuild your credit at some point. Sometimes it is not easy to get credit after filing bankruptcy without some effort. Some people have more money to rebuild their credit than others, but the good news is that your credit can be rebuilt and I will offer advise on how it can be done. Generally speaking it involves making timely payments on secured lines of credit that report the payments to the credit reporting agencies. Most people do not have any problem getting a car loan after bankruptcy, so long as they have a good income source, but they will have to pay a higher interest rate.
Alternatives to bankruptcy, such as direct debt settlement negotiations with your creditors may be more appropriate for some clients who seek debt relief and resolution.
