Start talking to creditors.

If you have a dismissed bankruptcy (assuming Chapter 13?), you are once again at the mercy of your creditors, and they will probably come at you with a vengeance. Now if any of the debt defaults are older than the Statute of Limitations (check the laws for your state), you can pretty much ignore them and they go off your credit report in 7 years. The rest you may well want to start negotiating payments with creditors over.

It is possible to have a dismissal turned back into an active bankruptcy, but you will have to coordinate it with your lawyer and the trustee. Note that doing so may cost a bit of extra cash as well.
