Bankruptcy will give you a fresh start, so it is important to do everything right after you file. The most important thing you can do to rebuild your credit after bankruptcy is continue to make your monthly payments on time.
And when you pay your bills, pay the entire balance, not just the minimum amount due. From utility bills to credit card and car payments, if you get behind again, you will put yourself in an even bigger hole.
Proper planning today can make a big difference in the long run. Choose your expenses carefully, and make sure you do not take on bills beyond your means. I may be able to help you obtain a low balance gasoline credit card to help you take care of necessities. After a year of smart spending habits, you will start to get credit again.
Beware of Credit Repair Companies
I understand that you want to make things better and avoid future debts. That is why I tell all my clients to be careful of credit repair companies. Charging large upfront fees, they say they can remove negative information from a credit report in a month or less. That is just not how the law works. It will take at least seven to ten years to have your credit report clean again. The best way to rebuild your credit is through smart spending habits.
