How do you restore credit history after the bankruptcy?

It all depends on how yu want to do it. The best advice I can give is to say take it slow and be very very careful. After discharge of the debts, those who declared bankruptcy receive tons of credit offers. Most of them are very bad for the consumer. I usually suggest someone start out with a pre-paid credit card and then move on to a different credit card once they learn how to control their financial situation. The worst thing to do is to get yourself in a pile of debt again, because it raises the percentage rates for everyone and if you're unable to handle it, you will not be able to declare bankruptcy again for at least 8 years. The more people who declare bankruptcy, the worse the credit card terms get for everyone. This trend is fact, not fiction and is happening in horrendous (and secret) ways right now...
