As with everything, bankruptcy law can be complicated and the manner by which credit ratings occur can seem mysterious at best. Filing for bankruptcy will in general lower your credit score, but with some good spending habits and good financial stewardship will again rise over time, especially since part of your credit score has to do with income to debt ratio. When you file for bankruptcy, the debts do not simply disappear as if they never existed. Your history of late or missed payments, if you have one, will remain on your credit report and will continue to drag down your credit score. Additionally, the bankruptcy will stay on your record for many years. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for 10 years from the date of the filing
