Filing For Bankruptcy May Improve Your Credit Score

You have dealt with plenty of challenges in your life and overcome them. Now you are confronted with another one: Your finances are in dire straits. A job loss, a major medical issue or poor money management habits can all take their toll and lead you toward considering bankruptcy.

But before you take that step, you have some concerns. One main question: What will happen to your credit score if you file for bankruptcy? Harriss and Hartman Law Firm, P.C., in Rossville, Georgia, is an effective and experienced group of lawyers that understands bankruptcy law. We will help you get back on the road to improving your financial life.

Our Experienced Attorneys Will Get You Back On Track

Since 1972, we have provided solid advice to clients who seek to turn around their finances. Many people focus on the temporary hit their credit score will take instead of focusing on the larger issue, which is unmanageable debt. What good does having a decent credit score help if you are drowning in debt? Your credit score will recover. What matters more is emerging from crushing debt, reducing your stress and regaining control of your financial life. 

We can help you implement a plan that may include filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Typically, people see their credit scores improve after they file for bankruptcy. Once you have taken that step, credit bureaus recognize that you want a financial turnaround. But to ensure that this happens, you must change a few things. They may include paying all your bills on time, changing your spending habits and monitoring your credit report. Our effective attorneys will get you started.
