After Filing Bankruptcy: Qualifying For Credit And Loans
R. Lawrence Anderson

After filing bankruptcy, is it difficult to qualify for credit and loans?


While much will depend on your specific situation (credit score, income, age of bankruptcy, etc.), it doesn't have to be as difficult as some people make it.


In After Bankruptcy Credit Solutions, I detail a three step process readers can use after filing bankruptcy to increase their chances of credit approval.


There's not nearly enough room to cover each one in detail here, so I'll summarize each step:


1) Increase your credit score


If you plan on applying for credit after filing bankruptcy, increasing your credit score is critical. Why? First, it can mean the difference between being approved or declined for a loan. Second, if you can increase your credit score enough after filing bankruptcy, you may be able to get a lower interest rate on any loans you qualify for - which could save you up to $100s or even $1,000s in interest.


What steps can be taken that could help increase your credit score after filing bankruptcy? There are a number of them. One step is to have any inaccurate negative information on your credit reports corrected. You also want to make sure any obsolete negative information is removed from your credit reports. As for other steps that could help increase your credit score after filing bankruptcy, I'll save those for another article.


2) Know How the Credit Approval Process Works


Knowing how the credit approval process works is very important when applying for loan after filing bankruptcy. For example, what are the lender's criteria? Do they have a minimum credit score criteria? What about income? How much of an impact will your bankruptcy have?


After filing bankruptcy, you want to know the answer to these questions before you apply for credit. Knowing the answers in advance can help you find the lenders that will consider your application. There are other questions you can ask, but this at least gives you a starting point.


3) Know How to Apply for Credit and Loans


There are specific strategies you can use when applying for credit and loans after filing bankruptcy. For example, if you plan on financing a car, there are strategies you can use to increase your chances of being approved for the loan - and possibly save money on interest charges, and even on the car itself.


Here's another example: What if you want to buy a home after filing bankruptcy? Again, there are a number of strategies you can use to increase your chances of being approved - and potentially reducing the interest rate you pay. I go into detail on each one in After Bankruptcy Credit Solutions.


Qualifying for credit and loans after filing bankruptcy does not have to be as difficult as some people make it. In this article we looked at three steps you can take the next time you apply for credit and loans after bankruptcy to increase your chances of credit approval, and potentially reduce the interest rate you end up paying in the process.
