Life After Bankruptcy

Palm Harbor Bankruptcy lawyer

One of the number one questions I am asked from a client is “How will filing bankruptcy affect my credit score?” I am also frequently asked “How will a foreclosure affect my credit score?”  Unfortunately, I never was able to properly answer this question because how the FICO score is calculated has always been a secret. Recently; however, FICO revealed how common credit mistakes affect credit scores including the filing of a bankruptcy. To find out more, please read the excellent article written by Jeremy M. Simon. The link to the article is provided below for your convenience.
