No, a credit score is compiled from a consumer's complete credit history.
Yeah YEah YEah
In some cases, it actually does. This really depends on a lot of factors and variables, but I have seen credit scores increase 100+ points after filing a bankruptcy.
Most likely, yes. One of the biggest effects that filing for bankruptcy has is on your credit. Bankruptcy will stay with your credit for roughly 10 years and because of that your score will decrease, at least initially.
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.
About 4 to 5 years
The fact of filing bankruptcy is already going to lower your credit score, and the point of bankruptcy, part of it anyway, is to resolve unpayable debt such as collection accounts. It is in your best interest to add the collection accounts to your bankruptcy, but if you consult your BK attorney, he is likely to advise you of this. The bankruptcy is the first next step in repairing your credit and improving your credit score.

There is no set credit score that everyone is assigned after filing bankruptcy.

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
