How long will bankruptcy damage my credit score?

Your credit score will be reduced after bankruptcy and while it is impossible to put an exact time frame on it since it will depend on a variety of unique factors, remember that the ding to your credit by showing a bankruptcy is short term. In the long run, you will have less debt and will show your creditors that you have done something about your financial problems. Then, over time, your credit score can be built up again by building a new, positive financial life.
