I am in dire need of some information but since I filed for bankruptcy after my divorce, I am a financial pariah and no respectable banker or planner will give me the time of day. I am 33 y, f, w/ $40,000 in credit debt and $40,000 in student loans. {Yeah, I know the latter can't be discharged...) I have no income currently while I'm pursuing my graduate degree because to have an income would knock me out of eligibility for my free education. So, to the point. How badly have I messed myself up? I read somewhere that bad credit was worse than a bankruptcy, especially when I get ready to purchase a home. I plan on paying off my student loans within 2 years after I obtain my graduate degree. Will this help me to obtain some financial respectability? Enough to get a house? What's worse is that I'm afraid employers will want permission to check my credit report and I don't want to give it. I also want to begin investing in my retirement before I'm 40 y. Advice, please, would be oh-so-welcome! An Aspiring MF, 2Green
