Life After Bankruptcy

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 bankruptcy. To find out more, please read the excellent article written by Jeremy M. Simon.
