Re: How and when do I tell a future suitor that I've had a recent bankruptcy?

I don't think you need to divulge that info when just dating someone. When you feel it is at a level where you would talk about things like incomes, future living situations, wanting children etc, then it would be more appropriate imo.

Re: How and when do I tell a future suitor that I've had a recent bankruptcy?

There's no perfect time is but it should be disclosed well in advance of any discussions about mixing finances.

 

No one wants to find out about a BK when looking for a mortgage.

 

I don't know how many people would even care, TBH. People can rebuild really well post-BK. The work after BK probably determines the extent to which it affects other aspects of a couple's life. Someone who already has their stuff together and finished rebuilding probably isn't perceived as a liability.
