    Answered . You may be able to contact the creditors to see about working out settlement arrangements. You didn't mention the age of any of these debts and whether or not they might be beyond the statute of limitations. You can also consult with a local bankruptcy attorney to review your options.

    Answered . Correcting the bad credit that can result from unemployment can be difficult because if the information in the credit report is true, excuses won't fix it. You may wish to work at creating small positive information rather than focus on the overwhelming task of hiding from the past. You may also want to adjust your expectations and not seek large credit purchases until your have let some time heal the past credit wounds. Hope this perspective helps!
