Life After Bankruptcy

Protecting Your Future with the Michigan Bankruptcy Attorney

Many people are concerned about what life will be like after filing for bankruptcy. Usually, they have heard various myths that can cause them to overlook the many benefits of this valuable legal remedy. I am a Michigan bankruptcy lawyer who has helped individuals, business owners and families get rid of their debts through bankruptcy. When a person is able to resolve their debt problems in a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, they will usually feel a tremendous amount of relief that their money troubles are behind them.

One misconception about bankruptcy is that after you complete the process and eliminate your debts, you will no longer be able to obtain credit. The truth is that you can take action as soon as your bankruptcy case has concluded to start improving your credit score, such as obtaining a secured credit card.

In order to rebuild your credit, you will also need to:

  • Monitor your credit report and correct any errors
  • Create and stick to a budget
  • Avoid any mistakes of the past

My firm, Hensel Law Office, PLLC, represents clients in financial trouble, and will confidently guide you through the bankruptcy process. Once your case has concluded, I will continue working with you to ensure that you are doing well financially and that your money problems have been resolved.

The life you will lead after filing for bankruptcy is really up to you, as you have the choice to be proactive in rebounding from the toll that it has taken on your credit score or you can slip into the same bad habits. With solid legal guidance and supportive assistance, however, getting back on track to a successful financial future is easier than you would think.
