Personal Finance

Before filing for bankruptcy or after, many consumers are looking for advice on how to handle their personal finances. A bankruptcy can last on your credit report for several years, but it’s worth pursuing bankruptcy protection for those who feel like their debt has gotten out of control but they want to keep their property. For others, maybe you just need a little bit of help learning how to budget better. Whether it’s about rebuilding your credit, opening a new line of credit without digging deeper into debt, or getting a mortgage after bankruptcy, we want to make National Bankruptcy Forum your first stop for personal finance information. Your next step would be consulting with a qualified bankruptcy attorney or a financial advisor. Good luck!
