Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
A client asked me if their chapter 7 bankruptcy ,which was discharged 3 years ago next month, would prevent them from obtaining a loan to refinance. Their credit scores are low 600's. They have only one active credit card which appears on the credit report. Their existing 1st, 2nd, & 3rd were part of the bankruptcy, but were not re-affirmed, and they have continued making payments on all three. These, however, do not show up on the credit reports.

The answer is that it can be done, but the first thing you need to find out is whether they fall into the 4 year or the 2 year bankruptcy category.
