The Positive Effects of Filing Bankruptcy

The most immediate effect of filing bankruptcy is that it will stop creditor harassment. You will no longer have creditors calling you, sending you threatening letters, or bothering your neighbors and loved ones. Filing bankruptcy will also halt any judgments against you and will avoid repossession and wage garnishments, as well as state or federal tax levies. Another benefit is that this will give you more time if your home is in foreclosure.

The Negative Effects of Filing Bankruptcy

Filing bankruptcy will immediately put a negative mark against your credit. It will be difficult for you to get credit cards or home, school, personal or business loans. Seeking relief now also means that you will be unable to seek financial relief again for several years.

This does not mean that there is no hope of rebuilding your credit, however. Most often, creditors are willing to provide you with lines of credit at first with higher interest rates. Once your credit is in better condition, those interest rates will go down. While you may have to work to make life after bankruptcy beneficial for you, it possible for you to start anew.
