Potentially Negative Impact

Credit scores are often what connect people to any short-term or long-term loans or services, whether through a bank, mortgage program or other financing agency. If your credit score is in good standing, it is likely that a bankruptcy can have a negative effect on that score.

While filing bankruptcy is an attempt to get rid of debt in order to be able to maintain better credit, some banks or mortgage companies may see the bankruptcy and conclude that too many people may have taken a chance on you before. The new company may not want to be a part of known indebtedness and run the risk of losing money.

Positive Impact

It is likely that a person’s credit score is already in negative standing if he or she has filed for bankruptcy. In these cases, it is possible for a credit standing to actually improve at a bankruptcy case’s conclusion. This is because bankruptcy can only be filed in specific time periods. A credit company may approve an applicant who has a bankruptcy on his or her credit report because the company knows the person will not be able to file bankruptcy again anytime soon, and has taken steps to rectify the debt and rebuild credit.
