Is it legal to get a credit card after bankruptcy?

It is up to the credit card company/bank to give you a credit card. If they approve you, that is their risk. Lately, card companies purposely target people with bad credit (including people who have gone through bankruptcy) because they have a better chance of making a profit through late fees and high interest. Also, new bankruptcy laws state that credit card debt can now not be relieved through bankruptcy. So, if you have bad credit or you are an idiot with your money, don't fool around with credit cards.
