Bankruptcy is devestating to your credit score. The amount of damage done depends on what your credit score was beforehand. The lower your score, the less the hit and the higher your score, the more the hit. It can be between a 150 - 300 point drop and stays on your credit report for at least 7 years depending on the type of bankrupcy filed.
