Bankruptcy laws do not prohibit a person from opening another credit account. However, it may be difficult to find a bank willing to extend credit to someone who has filed bankruptcy. In addition, consumers should be careful not to repeat past mistakes. Once bankruptcy has been filed, it is a good idea to operate on a cash basis to re-learn the essentials of personal finance.
