Filing will lower your credit score. We have found that a high percentage of our clients actually see their credit score go up after filing a bankruptcy. This generally occurs because the filing and completing of a bankruptcy reduces your debt to income ratio, a factor which helps to improve your score. However, before your case is closed you will receive credit card offers. You may have slightly higher interest rates initially. As you rebuild your credit, making monthly payments on time, your score will continually rise and your interest rates will decline. You will even be able to buy a home after a short time of reestablishing your credit.
