Bankruptcy is more than just a court filing. It is a process that involves strategic considerations before, during and after the filing takes place.
“Bankruptcy can be a complicated legal process that involves a number of steps. When filing for personal bankruptcy protection, you may opt for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, depending on your specific situation,” said Ryan Patton, of Patton Knipp Dean, which focuses on bankruptcy law.
The first step in rebuilding one’s credit is to assess the situation. “It is imperative you get rid of outdated information, and eliminate debts that have been discharged in bankruptcy,” stressed Patton. “You should also identify and update inaccurate information.”
Following bankruptcy, one’s credit report may still reflect old debts that have been eliminated. The credit repair process involves disputing inaccurate or out-of-date information to clean up the credit report.
“Credit repair may become necessary for several reasons. Those who file bankruptcy are wise to pursue credit repair after the bankruptcy is completed,” concluded Patton. “Otherwise, your credit may suffer far longer than necessary, which in turn can slow your progress in rebuilding financial stability.”
