Improving Your Credit Rating

If you filed bankruptcy 18 months ago but it was dismissed and now you would like to purchase a home and your credit score is not that great what can you do?

A bankruptcy, even a dismissed bankruptcy, will lower your credit score 75 to 150 points. There's really no way to raise it other than by paying your bills when due, and time. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person.
