How Do I Establish Credit After a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy? – Patti

By on February 28, 2013

“Dear Steve,

Filed chapter 7 & was discharged. This was all due to credit cards (alot from medical bills). My attorney said I might as well give the house to the bank also. He said it would not hurt the credit card debt that much at that point. I had met someone anyway & was planning to move. I helped the bank by giving them the name of someone who wanted to buy the condo. Attorney said it could take 2 yrs, not necessarily 10, if I establish good credit. I received my credit report & 3 scores. Because of my excellent payment history, my scores are…..696, 668, & 728.

Obviously I can’t establish more credit because I do not pay on housing, rent etc. Only rent to my finance & other household responsibilities, which don’t count to them. Attorney had said to just apply for 1 card & pay off each mo. of course. But can’t seem to find a card who will accept me. Did I miss any company who will?
