Filing for Bankruptcy: What Happens Next?
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Questions, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Information, and Life After Bankruptcy.
After you file for bankruptcy, you are sure to ask: What happens next? There are many myths surrounding bankruptcy. A New York bankruptcy lawyer at the Law Offices of Ingber and Provost can meet with you to discuss the truth about bankruptcy and what it has to offer.
One common concern is whether credit can be rebuilt. A debtor can most definitely rebuild his or her credit after bankruptcy. In fact, filing for bankruptcy may be viewed as the first step towards recovering financially.
Life after Bankruptcy
Dealing with life after bankruptcy does not have to be difficult. Here are a few tips:
- Save as much as possible.
- Try to control spending and live within your means.
- Only put items on credit if you have the means to pay these off in short order. Until you pay off a card, do not use it again.
- If you filed a chapter 13 case, concentrate on making your monthly payments regularly and on time.
