Bankruptcy is notorious for it’s affect on your credit score. When you file bankruptcy, your credit score will drop and you’ll have trouble getting credit for awhile. There’s really no way to know exactly how much your credit score will fall because it varies based on your credit report, but you may be able to estimate the damage.
While it’s true that your credit will be affected if you file bankruptcy, the damage won’t last forever. You can start rebuilding your credit a few months after you file bankruptcy. As time passes, your credit score will improve and after several years the bankruptcy will drop from your credit report completely.
