Carefully monitoring your credit score is a useful way to control your finances and avoid debt. If your credit report contains old or inaccurate information, that could affect other aspects of your life. With the help of the Law Office of David A. Fernandez, P.C., you can repair your credit and improve your economic situation.
A low credit score can negatively impact your entire life. Your credit report shows any bankruptcy filings, foreclosures and tax liens. This information can be seen by creditors, landlords or employers. If your credit score is reflecting old or inaccurate information, you need to update and repair it. Anything that legitimately should be on your report must remain, but there may be reported information that is no longer relevant to your situation or that should never have been included. A skilled Houston debt defense attorney at our firm can help you review your credit report to determine if it is accurate.
