I'm glad I found these forums. I appreciate all the positive stories and advice. My husband and I have 12 payments left on a 5 yr Ch 13. Yes, the end is in sight, but it has been an interesting road so far. Doable, but rough sometimes.
That's all, just wanted to say thanks.

Thanks, MovingForward_2012. We're anxious to start rebuilding, and are getting a lot of helpful info from these forums to prepare is for it next year. Both of our cars are aging, and we will need to most likely replace both soon after the discharge next year.
Do you think it's too soon (now) to try to get a low limit secured credit card? We don't want to step on our Trustee's toes.

Heard back from my attorney. He said yes, go ahead and apply now for secured cards.

I had a couple of denials last night, but am going to call the backdoor numbers today. Frustrating, but I'm trying to keep my chin up. Thank you again for the encouragement.
