Not just can, has to be.

You don't have real choices on what is in your bankruptcy. It must include all of your assets and all of your debts...some may be classified as exempt and not available for use or discharge, but all must be listed. You do not pick and chose what you want to payoff with what you want to pay with. Wanna' guess why?

How long after you file bankruptcy can you get a checking account?

A checking account has nothing to do with a bankruptcy unless the bank you are going to deal with does a credit check on you and uses this information to Approve/Disapprove you based on that info. If you are turned down by a bank try another, some bank in your area will give you a Checking Account I'm sure. Good luck getting a checking account. I filed chapter 7 and was discharged over a year ago and NO ONE in the area will give me a checking account. I have to get my paycheck cashed to pay bills. The above person can't get a checking account probably because when they filed for bankruptcy, they included some current bank account they had. When you do this, the bank will place an inquiry on Check Systems and that is what banks used to determine if they will grant you a bank account at their branch. I understand your problem entirely. Refer to the above comment about ChexSystems. Keep in mind that not all banks use ChexSystems, there are still 20% of banks that use some other system or no verification system. If you have been legitimately reported to ChexSystems for owing a bank money, there is no way to remove it unless you can get the bank that added the report to request the removal. You can however, get a note placed on the account if you have paid the debt in full - this will not ensure that you can open a checking account, but it does improve your chances with a bank that has the option of overriding a ChexSystems report. Easiest way out, check with your local credit unions and smaller banks. Odds are one of them either doesn't use ChexSystems or they will open an account even with negatives on that system. ; I just came out of Chapter 7 and could not open an account as long as you included the bank in your bankruptcy and have your discharge papers along with the line item showing they were included into the bankruptcy you can open another account. Just order a chexsystem report then dispute the item as paid and request it to be updated/removed you then will be able to open another account within 30 days. If they dont show a 0 balance you can sue them under the bankruptcy law. but you wont have a problem as i was able to open account 15 days after my dispute.
