How is my credit affected from filing bankruptcy?

Credit affected filing bankruptcy

Many people contemplating Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy are concerned about the impact that the filing will have on their credit rating.

Although a bankruptcy doesn’t look favorably on one’s credit score, the impact can vary depending upon your credit score before filing.

If you are behind on your accounts and your debt-to-asset ratio is large and your credit is already disrupted.  If you choose to file, your credit will take somewhat of a drop but not necessary a huge plummet.

If, on the other hand, your credit is favorable prior to filing, then your credit score will be impacted heavier post filing.
