There are a lot of options out there, and an experienced lawyer can help you take advantage of the ones that are right for you. At the Royal Oak and Flint offices of Bidwell Tovarez PLLC, we help clients across Michigan rebuild their credit.

Have You Considered A Secured Credit Card?

Dedicated to bankruptcy law, our attorneys understand the full impact that filing for bankruptcy can have on an individual. Just because you wipe your debt clean does not mean your financial concerns are over. The next step is to find a way to rebuild your credit. We will outline simple steps to help you on your way, as well as make sure you have access to credit counseling and debtor education classes.

The best way to rebuild credit after filing for bankruptcy is to maintain current payments on your rent or mortgage. This will automatically improve your credit. You can also help yourself by getting a secured credit card account with a bank and making timely payments on that as well. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, your timely payments to the Chapter 13 trustee will help you rebuild your credit as you pay back your creditors.
