Life After Bankruptcy
Legal Help from Our Raleigh Bankruptcy Lawyers
After you file for bankruptcy, life goes on. There is a common misconception
that filing for bankruptcy can ruin your future and your opportunities
because you will never be able to rebuild your credit, because you will
lose all your assets and property and because you will forever carry the
label of a lazy or dishonest person who filed for bankruptcy. Nothing
could be further from the truth!
Although it may be difficult to regain a high credit score immediately
after filing for bankruptcy, with some hard work and by being responsible
with your finances you can rebuild your credit score and buy a house or
buy a car. You always have options. You do not have to lose all of your
assets. You are not a bad person because you are turning to bankruptcy
to handle your financial situation.
Bankruptcy procedure exists for debtors just like you to get a fresh start.
There is nothing wrong with taking advantage of this and reorganizing
or discharging your debt in order to get a second chance. A bankruptcy
attorney in Raleigh can meet with you and discuss your options in this
regard. It may be necessary to get a secured credit card or to co-sign
with a friend or family member.
What to do after Bankruptcy
There are some specific actions that are very helpful in rebuilding your
life and credit following bankruptcy:
Find a job if you don’t have one, and work to maintain your job if
you already have one.
Pay your bills on time.
If you get another credit card, be sure to pay it on time every month and
pay more than the minimum balance due.
Do not take on any debt on a credit card that you cannot pay off.
Be sure to open and maintain a checking and/or savings account, and work
to keep your bank balance as high as possible.
