How Bankruptcy Affects Credit Score

Bankruptcy is a serious financial event that can have long-term effects on your credit score. Your credit score gives lenders an idea of how trustworthy you are when it comes to paying your debts, and if you’ve filed for bankruptcy, then this will undoubtedly affect your credit score in the short-term. Knowing exactly how bankruptcy affects your credit score is important for anyone considering filing for it.

When someone files for bankruptcy, their current debt is eliminated or restructured to make it easier to pay off. This process will immediately lower their credit score due to its negative impact from being on record with the court system. Depending on which type of bankruptcy you file (Chapter 7 or Chapter 13), a person’s credit score can drop anywhere from 85-160 points in just one day.
