Hi JACustomer,

One's credit starts to improve around one year after filing a Bankruptcy, and as long as there is no further negative activity, it will continue to improve gradually.

Once can usually get a mortgage around 3 years after filing.


I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
Thank you!
