Just in. Results from my survey on recent bankruptcy clients--and their credit scores.https://robertweed.com/2019/07/13/credit-scores-after-bankruptcy-are-close-to-national-average-in-just-three-years/

After bankruptcy, be sure to get a couple credit cards.

I'm doing a survey of people who filed bankruptcy with me a few years ago. About half of them are telling me their score is 670 or higher, which is what Experian calls "good."

That's a lot better than most people expect--many people have heard that you go for seven years with bad credit--but it's less than what it should be.

The problem may be that about two out of five people did NOT go out right away and get a couple new credit cards.

After bankruptcy, it's important to build a new credit history. Your old, bad credit is frozen, although not wiped away. But you need to build good credit on top of it.

People get several credit card offers in the mail. And you can search on the internet for "credit cards for bad credit."

Charge something like gasoline every month, and pay it off every month. If you can do that, in three years your score should be well above 700.

Some people never want to see a credit card again. That's understandable, but it's not good strategy. If you want to be able to get a car loan at a good interest rate in a few years. you've gotta build a new credit history.

Get a couple cards. Charge something every month. Pay them off every month. Get back to good credit. Make the most of your new start.

No cases dismissed in February.

I was tied for second among Northern Virginia bankruptcy lawyers in the number of cases filed in February 2019. But I was the only lawyer filing more than ten cases who had none dismissed.

(Dismissed and discharged sound the same, but they are exact opposites. Discharged means approved; dismissed means thrown out.)

Sometimes I do file cases knowing they are likley, or certain, to get dismissed: when a consumer needs immediate help, even though bankruptcy won't work out. But a high rate of dismissals, may mean a lot of people didn't get what they wanted from the bankrutpcy system.

So we are proud of our no dismissal February.

[03/02/19]   Just got this nice email from folks we helped in late 2018.

Mr. Weed,
and Lori,

Happy belated New Year 2019. A long overdue thank-you for all that you have both done for our family, great business you have helping people! Nadine and I will never forget how you changed our lives for the better, "Be Happy, and Live Debt Free", our new way of life! I will always recommend your law firm to anyone who needs a great Bankruptcy Lawyer. Jeff/Nadine.

The Fine for Scamming U.S. Veterans Out of Their Pensions Is Now $1

I saw a veteran, nearly 20 years ago, who had sold his VA benefit to a scammer. I was able to use the bankruptcy law to get it back. The scammers insisted what they did was legal, and said they would go to court to block the bankruptcy. Be my guess, I said; and they backed off.

The CFPB did a good job shutting these guys down. That's why we have them. This $1.00 fine is hard to explain.

The shutdown affected a lot more than just the Federal employees. Yesterday say a guy, already in financial trouble, living as an Uber driver. Because business is down, he could not make his January 15 rent--has to pay every two weeks--and has been living in his car.

Another guy has a very small export business. Can't get export licenses during the shut down, can't make his SBA loan payment. This guy's business helps American manufacturing sell overseas, and in danger of losing that market.

Better Business Bureau sent me this nice commendation, for 15 years of support.

customerlobby.com Khalid's review of Bankruptcy Law Office of Robert Weed. The whole team is unbelievable. Vanessa is the best.

Filed a bankruptcy New Years Eve for a guy getting garnished by Ford Credit on a 2006 repossession. He thought when it dropped of his credit report that it was gone.

Ford Credit never quits! Right after the repo they get a judgment and then can chase you for 20 years!

(It was especially bad for this guy, who then lost his civilian clearance at DoD for bad credit, and is now making $15.00 an hour less than he was. He now knows, when you have a clearance, clean up, don't cover up!)

[12/29/18]   A short post on the government shut down. I know a friend who has background in Russian studies, and a background in social media. He's a perfect person to help Homeland Security prevent Russian interference in America.

And he has a contract to do that. BUT that contract is not funded because of the shut down. We see a lot in the news about Federal employees furloughed, and federal employees ordered to work without pay.

On top of that, our country is less secure, because Homeland Security programs right now are just NOT being done. That's just one example.
