Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
It’s illegal for an employer not to hire or promote a person based upon a bankruptcy filing. However, companies often check credit when a job requires a security clearance. Typically a security clearance can be denied based upon bad credit. In your situation, a Chapter 7, would typically eliminate your debt and possibly improve your credit.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
