Will Bankruptcy Destroy The Chance For Credit In The Future?

Debtors who are contemplating filing bankruptcy in Minnesota often are concerned with their credit. A common concern of debtors is what, if any, credit may be available to someone who has gone through a bankruptcy. There is not a simple answer that will apply to everyone who completes a bankruptcy. Many factors may influence how soon and how much credit may be available after a bankruptcy is completed. What should be expected is that a person who has completed a bankruptcy should thereafter work attentively and with patience to develop a fine credit standing.

Handling Credit Matters

What Can be Done to Try to Rebuild Credit?

There are a number of things a person can do to try to rebuild credit including:

  • Creating a practically achieved budget and staying with it. Such a budget should include setting aside some money for savings and an emergency fund. This gets a person into the habit of saving and provides some money to meet an emergency.


  • Develop the habit of considering before making any purchase whether it is something you merely want or something you really need? If the purchase is something you need then the next consideration is whether there is a less expensive alternative? Before making even needed purchases a person should consider whether there is time to wait before making it so that you can save up enough money to cover the entire cost. Buying things with the promise to make periodic payments can get a person into trouble so it is a good idea to try to pay for needed items up front so as not to run the risk of problems in the future that may among other things hurt your credit.


  • Whenever possible carry appropriate insurance to protect against serious problems in the future such as medical insurance. Debts based on Medical treatment are a common cause of people getting into financial problems. Medical insurance may help not only in catastrophic illness or injury situations, but allow a person to get medical treatment that avoids the development or aggravation of a condition that could lead to serious illness or even death.


  • Refrain from the use of credit cards whenever possible. It is not a good idea to use credit cards to pay for budgeted monthly costs. If you have to pay a high rate of interest on regular expenses it may greatly increase the cost of everyday items enormously and ultimately bring you into a serious debt situation.

The forgoing are only some of the many considerations that apply to the development of good credit.
