What to do???

What should I be doing while I am waiting on a discharge? Can I apply for any cc? Work on the dispute process? 

 

Thanks!

Re: What to do???

Be sure you have copies of your credit reports.  Otherwise there's not much you can (or IMHO should) do before discharge.

 

You want the credit reports to deal with behavior post discharge, I had some creditors take closed accounts and recast them as IIB which makes them negative.  Because I could prove how they reported before filing I was able to get them to report correctly, without proof I don't know what success I would have had.
