You don't have to wait the 10 years to start your recovery.   There are vendors that will provide you with a small credit line when your bankruptcy is but only 2 years old.  They then monitor your payment actions at that point.   You can speed the process by applying for a secured credit card from a reputable firm.   You will want one that will convert the secure to an unsecured account in a period of time.  Not all secured cards can be converted to unsecured.    Read the reviews on the firms here on Credit Karma.  Nothing like feedback on who to choose from those that made the choice.

Faidros is correct. You can begin rebuilding and obtaining credit contrary to the first response. Secured cards are a great way to start.

Probably not until the bankruptcy drops off your credit report, and that is usually ten years after filing.  Reading the articles on this site will give youi valuable credit information you can use for the rest of your life.
