Credit Score After Chapter 7 BankruptcyOctober is a time for scares: ghosts, goblins, and ghouls abound and frights are as common as falling leaves. One type of scare you don’t want in October is to come face-to-face with a low credit score. Unfortunately, for those who are considering filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Minnesota, a low credit score is a common problem and, once your score has fallen, it can be difficult to raise it again.

The relationship between Chapter 7 bankruptcy and your credit score

So, what is a credit score and how will filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Minnesota affect it?

What Makes Up Your Credit Score is a three-digit number that indicates your ability or inability to repay your loans and other debts. Credit scores range from 300, which is categorized as “very poor,” to 850, which is “exceptional.” Your financial activities cause your score to raise or lower over time. Lenders, banks, and other sources of financing use your credit score to determine whether or not to extend credit to you: a low score indicates that you are a risk, while a high score makes it more likely that you will repay the loan if it is given.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy itself is separate from your credit score, though the two are related. The same things that caused the need for Chapter 7 bankruptcy—whether it is unemployment, divorce, illness, or just bad luck—are also the cause of your low credit score. While filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy is an excellent way to erase your debts fast, it does not return your credit score to its original healthy state without some extra work on your part.
