Life After Bankruptcy - What to Expect

Visitors: 191

Have you filed for bankruptcy and are wonder how life after bankruptcy will be? You should expect certain things, but you need to know what is going to happen after you have completed your filing. Here is what to expect.

First, you will get bombarded with credit offers after your bankruptcy. Get yourself a good shredder and get used to shoving junk mail into it. This is what you are going to be doing after you go to the mailbox just about every single day.

Creditors know that you filed bankruptcy and cannot do it again for quite a few years. This is a marketing tactic that they use so they can get you to take out a credit card with a high interest rate or a loan with an expensive amount of interest.

You need to avoid these offers at all costs or you will end up right where you were before your bankruptcy.

Second, you should expect your credit to go down before it will get better. Your debts will come off after 7 years time and until they start coming off you will struggle to have good credit because of your bankruptcy.

Last, expect things to get a little harder before they get better. This happens because you will be paying on your bankruptcy for a little while and you will have to get used to a new type of budget. It will get easier, but you have to give it time.

Life after bankruptcy is full of ups and downs. It is also full of enticing offers for credit and financing that you need to avoid at all costs. You need to stick to your budget and only take out a loan when you really need it.
