Will bankruptcy affect my credit rating?

Our firm receives this question pretty often. So, we’ve decided to answer it on our blog.

Yes. Filing for bankruptcy will affect your credit rating. Initially, you may see a sharp decline in your FICO score. Once your debt has been discharged, and you begin making on-time payments and wise financial decisions regarding your credit, you can begin to see your FICO score increase.
