Although declaring bankruptcy is sometimes the best option for individuals in difficult financial situations, it does adversely affect credit history. Fortunately, you can start rebuilding your credit immediately after your bankruptcy. Always pay your bills on time and in full. Your credit score is partially comprised of your payment history.
