Life After Bankruptcy in Glendale
Once you have been through the nightmare that led up to a bankruptcy and have come out on the other side, discharge in hand or repayment plan established, you will feel a great sense of relief and freedom. In the midst of this relief also lies many continuing questions about what happens next in your life. Though bankruptcy effectively resolves debt and provides you with a firm financial foundation, difficult decisions will still need to be made. A Glendale bankruptcy attorney can provide trusted guidance on credit restoration and establishing realistic financial goals.
As you move forward, it will be critical for you to stick closely to a well-constructed and workable budget. It is important that you maintain steady employment. You must also be committed to paying your bills in full and on time and keeping a positive balance in your bank account without fail. Obtaining credit reports regularly and disputing any errors contained on them will be key.
Although traditional credit and loan opportunities will be scarce, by maintaining and paying an unsecured credit card on time, you can soon open up better options. If you filed for Chapter 7, your bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for ten years, and up to seven years after a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Though these marks will place definite restrictions upon you and can lead to frustration, by sticking to your new financial plan and reproving your creditworthiness, the effects of such limitations can be mitigated quite effectively.
