      Filing bankruptcy does not hinder you from acquiring credits but the possibility of credit
       approval is slim. Creditors and financial institutions review credit reports before granting
       credits to a person. After bankruptcy is declared, the availability of credit becomes
       limited and it also becomes a lot harder to be approved of credits as well as loans On
       the bright side, there are creditors who offer loans after two years of bankruptcy
       discharge.

      Removing negative marks of bankruptcy from credit reports cannot and do not happen
       before ten years but there are several ways that can help in improving credit statements.
       All of these methods are easy to enforce and can give the assurance of good results.
       Rather than simply looking away from credit statements, it is better to follow the proper
       guidelines that can save your financial status from declining any further. The effects of
       bankruptcy remain active on reports for ten long years but one should still work on
       incorporating good financial behavior to improve credit score.

       not after the case gets discharged. According to the Chapter 13, the record remains for
       seven years from the time the case is filed.

      The bankruptcy influences and lowers the credit scores by 75 to 150 points. There is no
       possibility of having the bankruptcy removed from the public records but a steady
       improvement of credit scores can be of great use.

spite of that, always remember that it is always important to pay bills on time. A good financial
history will boost the credit score.
