This week we discussed “life after bankruptcy” at length on our blog. We talked about rebuilding credit and establishing emergency savings as well as qualifying for a loan after filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Our firm is happy to help Milwaukee individuals who have gone through bankruptcy get back on their feet. One of the ways we do this is through credit counseling. Credit counseling is required before and after filing for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Credit counseling helps individuals start fresh and teaches them valuable information that can prevent a financial crisis from occurring again in the future.

Another aspect of post-bankruptcy credit counseling involves a credit report examination and explanation. Many people who have gone through bankruptcy are afraid to look at their credit scores and don’t really understand what the report means.

However, taking the time to learn about the credit report can allow a person to discover errors and get information added to the report that can increase their credit scores. We teach people that a credit report is not something to be feared, and it’s actually very easy to modify and add things to the report.

Finally, we work with Milwaukee bankruptcy clients at rebuilding their credit. As we discussed in our post earlier this week, individuals who file for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 can immediately begin working at rebuilding their credit.

At Miller & Miller Law, LLC, we first work with clients to determine the best solution to deal with their debt problems. If bankruptcy is the right choice, we let our clients know what to expect and then guide them through the process.

But our services don’t stop there. We also work with clients in adjusting to life after bankruptcy so that they can stay on the right track financially and avoid debt problems in the future. For more information, please visit our Kenosha Life After Bankruptcy Attorney page.
