Late payment will drive your credit score into the ground rapidly. Many people question filing a Bankruptcy even though their credit is shot through late payments on mortgages and other bills. Filing Bankruptcy put all collection activity on hold and your accounts show current and up to date as long as you make your payments on time. Most people are surprised tofine their credit in much better shape after a BK than before with a much higher credit score Late payments can always be corrected, and this will be reflected on your credit file. Bankruptcy, however, will stay on your credit file for six years.
The card holder is under no legal obligation for the card holder to continue making payments after filing for bankruptcy, unless the case is dismissed without a discharge. There are some who believe that they can improve their credit rating by pay off debts that were discharged in a bankruptcy, but I believe there are better methods to reestablish credit after bankruptcy.
yes noob how dont you know that
After filing bankruptcy, it is extremely important to be very careful to pay bills in full and on time. Missed payments or carrying credit card balances can negatively impact credit scores.
Credit counseling can be useful to use before declaring bankruptcy. They can help you manage your debt, develop a realistic budget, and formulate a plan to negotiate payments.
Bankruptcy is never really cleared. Companies usually stop considering it as an issue for credit, after seven years. It still remains in many consumer reports.
You need to notify the Credit company, once you've done that you may suspend payments.
The bankruptcy will appear on their credit if you include this card in your bankruptcy. If you leave the card off the bankruptcy, it will not effect their credit.
Bankruptcy lowers your credit report.
If your co-signer has declared bankruptcy but you have not and are current on your payments it will affect your credit until the original loan is paid off regardless of what state you are in. Once that loan is paid off and your connection to the other persons credit is severed you will operate on your own credit score.
While you are a bankrupt you can not legally take out a personal loan. Further before issuing you with a loan (even after your bankruptcy has cleared) all banks will perform credit checks and they will probably refuse you credit (the loan) on the basis of your history.
the banks credit card and your checking savings accounts are different. if you file bankruptcy they will check your available balance to see if you can make partial payments towards your creditors. only the IRS or government can freeze your accounts.
If you reaffirmed your car loan during your bankruptcy, you agreed to continue making the payments. If you included your car in the bankruptcy, then the loan was wiped clean, as it appears to have been according to your credit report. Your car should have been repossessed, but apparently wasn't. You should check with the lawyer who handled your bankruptcy, but my guess is that your car slipped through the cracks.
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
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.
No. What will happen is all the defaulted accounts listed in the bankruptcy will be marked as such.."included in bankruptcy". The credit history, late payments, judgments, etc. will remain the same. In addition to the scenario in the above answer: The bankruptcy filing itself will be listed in the "public records" portion of your credit report. The disposition needs to be listed also (the discharge). The "bad marks" (i.e., the accounts) will show on your credit for 7 years. The bankruptcy listing will show for 7 years for a completed and discharged Chapter 13 bankruptcy and 10 years for a discharged Chapter 7.
Your credit score starts going up the minute the bankruptcy is filed. Debts incurred after the filing (even the day after), are exempt from the bankruptcy. If you make house and/or car payments on time, your score goes up Legally, they can hold it for up to 10 years.
No, presuming the credit card holder makes all the payments he is supposed to...the user is not liable for the debt on the card, and it is not part of his BK.
If your partner files for bankruptcy and you don't then the bankruptcy will not appear on your credit report. But you will be partly responsible for before bankruptcy filing. Generally filing bankruptcy will affect the credit rating of the individual who filed it.
I just talked to a friend of mine today about this. She says that if you do not have any late payments sent your bankruptcy discharge your credit is good. She also said I'd be suprised to see how many lenders are willing to loan to me after the discharge of bankruptcy. This of course depends on wether or not your payments are current or if you have incurred any additional bills. Good Luck!
Bankruptcy looks worse on your credit report than a late payment. They will both drop your score quite a bit, but a bankruptcy lets your lenders know you gave up on the debts owed, so making it harder to get new loans. You can always try to contact the credit bureaus to try and dispute the negative listings and have them removed if possible.
You know the answer: YOU have to make the payments. You agreed to do that when you signed the agreement. Of course, you may be eligible for bankruptcy also.
You do not have to necessarily get credit counseling before you can file for bankruptcy.
A bankruptcy will remain on a credit report for the required ten years, it cannot be removed arbitrarily.
