How will bankruptcy affect your credit rating?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing remains on your credit report for 10 years, and Chapter 13 remains for 7 years. You may start qualifying for loans such as a car loan as early as one year after filing bankruptcy if you meet the income requirements. However, the lender will likely charge you higher than normal interest rates. It may take five to seven years before you are offered normal interest rates again.
