How long does it take to get your credit score up after you file for bankruptcy?

Question by Unknown12: How long does it take to get your credit score up after you file for bankruptcy ?
Someone I know recently filed for bankruptcy not even a year ago. And she throws it in my face that her credit score is higher than mine and that she can get a house and I can’t. I don’t have anything wrong with my credit score and never filed for bankruptcy I just have a couple credit cards. Really how long does it take to increase your score? And don’t banks look down on people that file?

bankruptcy lasts for 7 years after that you can try to rebuild credit

Answer by Good Credit Scores
Realistically, it just doesn’t matter what her credit score is.  With a recent bankruptcy there’s no way a lender will give her the money for a house.  And, if for some reason they do decide to provide a loan, they would jack up the interest rate to cover their risk.
