Pull Your Credit Report. We suggest to our clients to pull your credit report about 6 weeks after you receive your discharge letter. There will almost always be some errors still on the report and it is better to resolve these matters immediately after bankruptcy rather than waiting years before reviewing your report.
As mentioned in an earlier Blog that one cannot pick and choose the debts they wish to include in a bankruptcy. In general, if someone has a zero balance on a credit card that particular card will not be included in the bankruptcy filing. One may think that they will then be able to use that credit card in the future. In most cases the lender will close your account once they get wind of the bankruptcy filing and in this new credit environment they will close it.
