Bankruptcy Loans

Some people will have you believe that filing for bankruptcy is the end of the world, but this is not true. Just because you have filed for bankruptcy doesn’t mean you will never be able to get back on your feet again financially. In fact the purpose of a bankruptcy loan is to help you to reestablish your life and finances.

A bankruptcy loan can give people who have filed for bankruptcy opportunities they might not have otherwise, like the ability to own homes and even automobiles.

Loans are usually offered to people who have declared bankruptcy after their cases have been dismissed and their creditors have been paid.

In the case of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy the debtor must wait 2 years after their bankruptcy was filed to apply for a loan. After the case has been dismissed they can apply. In the case of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy a creditor must be paid in full before the debtor applies for a large loan.

The best way to get a loan after bankruptcy is to prove to your lenders that you are no longer a high-risk borrower. The most effective way to do this is to reestablish your credit by paying all bills on time and properly maintaining a credit card. Once you have done this you can request reference letters from your credit company and the companies that you pay for utilities to prove to other lenders that you are financially responsible.

Not all bankruptcy loans are given after debtors have washed their hands of bankruptcy. Sometimes loans are offered to people in debt as a payment alternative they can use to reimburse their creditors, but this is usually a recipe for disaster. The last thing a bankrupt individual or company needs is another creditor on their case while they still have debts to pay off.
