Bank Account Question

Recommended Posts

Unless you have a lot of problems from previous banks before filing you should be okay. Bingo made a good point on chexsystems. I list them for notice as a creditor so they get notice of the discharge. I really have not heard of people having problems after a BK getting a checking account unless they had a lot of overdrawn accounts prior. Make sure you make your house payment, car payment, any new debt payments on time after discharge. This will help to rebuild your credit.

Thanks. Good to know. Bankruptcy still in process. Did not have an issue with bounced checks. Just heard that it would be hard to open an account for a long time as banks would view people filing bankruptcy as poor credit risks and so would not approve a request to open a new bank account.
