No, filing bankruptcy will never help improve your credit score, it stays on your report 10 years whereas a repo or foreclosure normally remain 7 years. So bankruptcy would only make your credit worse.

This is an incorrect assumption that leads many people to avoid filing for bankruptcy. They fear that a bankruptcy will ruin their credit for a long time and that they will not be able to use credit, rebuild their credit or purchase a home in the future. The reality is that the majority of the people who are considering bankruptcy, already have poor credit, due to late payments, repossessions and foreclosures. Further, most people who file for bankruptcy can rebuild their credit to a relatively good level after two years. This depends significantly on what they do after filing for bankruptcy. It is important that you work toward rebuilding your credit after filing for bankruptcy.

When an individual files for bankruptcy, he/she must list down all the creditors and debts that they have. If the bankruptcy has already been filed and the individual has incurred new debt but has not yet been discharged by bankruptcy, that new debt is not included in the bankruptcy discharge. For an official opinion, it is advised you seek legal counsel. It is really important to seek legal advice from the expert about filing for bankruptcy.

Believe its every 7 years...You can file as many as you want. But if ever you filed already bankruptcy once then you should wait like 7-8years to file bankruptcy again. It depends on the chapter you are filing.

The best method to stop foreclosures is to pay any arrears that are due and to keep up with repayments when due. In addition to this, if one is already in arrears and facing foreclosure, then one may speak to their mortgage company about a repayment plan. Generally mortgage companies would prefer to just receive the money that they are owed than have to lose money on auction fees and other expenses associated with foreclosures.

If you included it in your bankruptcy, you're protected by the discharge. If you didn't and you're already discharged from Chapter 7, you may not be protected. I suggest you discuss this with your bankruptcy lawyer.
