Understanding Bankruptcy in Texas
May 10, 2021
Job loss. Divorce. An unexpected medical expense. A battered economy. Identity theft. Any of these events can trigger financial challenges that can lead to bankruptcy.

Credit After Bankruptcy
Many people think that after they file bankruptcy they won't be able to acquire credit ever again. No credit for a car. No credit for a new home. This is just not true! In fact, if you're in a position of considering it, bankruptcy will likely help you re-establish credit. Can you get credit after bankruptcy? Yes, you can!
Bankruptcy Is a REAL Solution.
If you're even considering bankruptcy then you're deeply in debt. You owe way more than you can pay or earn in any meaningful amount of time. The truth is when you're in severe debt you either already can't get the credit you need or you're about to be denied the credit you need.
Bankruptcy may help you eliminate your debt once and for all. Lenders who wouldn't dare loan you money in your severe debt situation will very likely loan you money post-bankruptcy as long as you show no further negative activity. It's true! Most car companies will loan money to someone six months after bankruptcy and home lenders consistently contact my office for lists of people one year out of bankruptcy.
Why? Because they're smart. They know that people that have been through bankruptcy are 5 times less likely to default on a loan than people who haven't been through bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is the right and responsible thing to do. Lenders are looking for that kind of responsibility.
