Obtaining Credit Cards After Bankruptcy

Secured Credit Cards

At the Leventhal Law Group, P.C., we offer bankruptcy guidance and debt relief – helping people resolve financial problems using consumer bankruptcy laws and negotiating with creditors.

While a bankruptcy remains on your credit record for many years, you can take steps to rebuild your credit as soon as your debts are discharged. For example, it is possible for bankruptcy clients to finance an automobile soon after receiving a discharge through bankruptcy.

Credit Cards

Many people begin receiving credit card offers within months of their bankruptcy discharge. However, just because you are receiving an offer, it does not mean you will qualify for a credit card under the best terms possible for you. It may be better to start with a secured credit card.
