Question about bankruptcy...and a comment

I've been watching CNN and the Dow has plunged about 400 points, which they are blaming on the subprime housing market..and the dubious state of credit in the country. So if everyone stopped using credit, we could grind the economy to a halt!!!!!!!!!! :smileyvery-happy:
Once a bankruptcy drops off your much will one's FICO score increase? How much does a bankruptcy count?

BK impact while significant trails off after several years... However you will see an uptick. And it will depend on your current FICO health as well.
