Many of our clients wonder what happens after bankruptcy. The good news is, it is not that complicated. After your bankruptcy case has ended, you simply go on with your life. You live your life as you see fit. There is no one looking over your shoulder to scold you about purchasing a new pair of shoes or taking a family vacation. Creditors and debt collectors are not permitted to pick up where they left off and begin harassing you about debts that were discharged in your bankruptcy. In most cases, no one will ever know that you filed a bankruptcy case unless you tell them, they were directly involved with your bankruptcy case or you give them permission to access your credit report. In other words, what happens after bankruptcy is up to you.
