What is the best way to repair and fix bad credit after bankruptcy?

First, make sure the credit bureaus show that all the debts included in the bankruptcy are discharged. You can do this by sending them the schedule of debts filed your case and a copy of the discharge order. After you have done this get a copy of your credit reports and make sure the credit bureau did this correctly, sometimes they don’t. Then make sure that all the information in your credit report is correct. Once this is done apply for some credit. You can start by getting a secured credit card. Use it and make sure you pay on time. This will cause some good credit to be reported with the bad. Over time you will be able to get more credit and if you use it wisely your credit score will rise and your credit report will look better. It takes time so be patient. Avoid any company that tells you they can get a bankruptcy wiped off your credit history. It can’t be done; only waiting the required number of years will do it.
