- Keeping an old inquiry from influencing your credit score
- Buying a home after bankruptcy

Our attorneys will work with you personally to help you understand the impact bankruptcy will have on you, and what possible issues you may have in the months and years after filing for bankruptcy. We don't want there to be any surprises. Our goal is helping you put your debt problems behind you and helping you enjoy a financial fresh start.
Avoiding Future Problems
The 2005 amendment to the Bankruptcy Code require all individual debtors to receive debtor education, or a "personal financial management course," before they receive a discharge. The course helps people improve their budgeting skills and stay out of future financial trouble.
