how low does your credit score go after filing bankruptcy? are you able to still get credit cards etc. after filing
Bankruptcy stays on your credit report for upto 10 years. I recommend clients immediately attempt to reestablish their credit after their Discharge is granted. Usually after the Discharge, Debtors receive a lot of "pre-approved credit offers". Be careful of those you accept, as they usually have introductory teaser rates that increase after a set period.See question

Service is required. I would suggest you review the Proof of Service in the Court's file. If it states that you were served via Substitute Service, at an address where you did not live or on a Sunday, you may have grounds to contest Service. Without these, the Court is not going to believe you. In Florida a Judgment is good for upto 20 years. I would suggest to meet with an attorney. Most attorneys provide a free initial consultation. www.Dont-Sweat-The-Debt.comSee question
