Most people seek bankruptcy because they are deep into a financial crisis. The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 made bankruptcy more difficult by instituting a meticulous “means test” that the consumer must undergo and pass before they may be approved to file bankruptcy, and even then approval is uncertain.
Bankruptcy Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 will stay on your credit history for 10 and 7 years respectively, and because bankruptcy happens through the public court system, it remains a part of your permanent public records. A permanent public record means that after the bankruptcy has dropped off of your credit report, you are required to declare it on any application that asks if you have ever filed bankruptcy. Filing bankruptcy establishes a permanent public record that never goes away.
The negative consequences of bankruptcy are severe, and often lead consumers to learn about debt relief.
