Credit Repair

Most people need to take out a loan in order to make big purchases such as homes and cars. When you apply for a loan, the loan company usually bases its decision to grant you a loan on your creditworthiness, which is largely based on your credit score. A credit score is based on various factors, including a person's past experience with credit and his or her ability to make payments on time. The better your credit score, the more likely you are to be approved for a loan and get favorable rates. Those with bad credit may find it difficult to get a loan, and in some cases it can even disqualify a person from particular jobs. However, it is possible for people with bad credit scores to repair their credit. FindLaw's Credit Repair section provides information about credit repair and how to go about restoring your creditworthiness. In this section, you can also find articles about the various kinds of credit repair companies and how a credit repair attorney can help you.
