As an Asheville bankruptcy attorney, I speak to people daily about rebuilding their credit scores after filing a bankruptcy case. Bankruptcy cases usually are used as a tool to speed up financial recovery while protecting assets at the same time, and a credit card can help increase your credit score post-filing.
My good friend and former law partner, Chris Layton, is a Charlotte bankruptcy lawyer who creates and maintains one of the best bankruptcy blogs in North Carolina. Read his recent article about getting a credit card after a bankruptcy case. I like the last part, about his relationship with former clients, and think its what people should be looking for when deciding which bankruptcy attorney to hire.
For those of you in Western North Carolina, outside of Chris’ practice area, contact me for a free initial bankruptcy consultation where we can talk about the availability of credit after a bankruptcy case.
