How Will Bankruptcy Affect My Career?

Will Bankruptcy Affect My Employment?

Experienced Indianapolis Bankruptcy Lawyers

It has become common practice for many employers to research job candidates' credit histories — and a bankruptcy will typically appear on your major credit reports for seven to 10 years. Depending on your line of work, it is possible that an employer might have a policy or make a judgment call that costs you a future opportunity.

Filing personal bankruptcy is a big decision, and it does have repercussions as well as important benefits. We welcome all our clients' questions and share our deep experience in the effort to help each person make his or her filing decision with confidence.

Where Does Your Credit Stand Today? Are There Practical, Effective Alternatives for Resolving Your Debt Problems?

It is important to consider that:

  • If you are seriously evaluating bankruptcy and other forms of debt relief, your credit reports almost certainly already reflect your financial difficulties. Some employers will look more favorably on an individual who took strong action to overcome their debt problems rather than letting them spiral further out of control.
  • Credit scores are most likely to be considered in evaluating candidates for management positions and those with budgeting and financial authority.
  • Our persistent economic slowdown has impacted people from all walks of life — professionals as well as wage earners, long-time homeowners as well as renters with few assets, and the elderly as well as the young. Many employers and hiring managers will recognize and respect that bankruptcy is often the best, most dependable means of regaining control of an adverse financial situation.
