Credit after Bankruptcy; Rebuilding your Credit after Bankruptcy.
WILL I EVER GET CREDIT AGAIN?
Yes, people who have gone bankrupt are able to get credit after they have been discharged from bankruptcy. In fact, you can even get credit while you are sstill in bankruptcy by applying for a secured credit card.
Individuals who have been insolvent are eligible for mortgage loans and all other kinds of credit at the same interest rates as those who have not gone bankrupt after two years from their discharge from insolvency.
