Answer:

Will bankruptcy ruin my good credit score?

If you have a good credit score, filing for bankruptcy will definitely damage it. According to FICO (the most widely-used credit scoring company in the U.S.), those with good credit should expect a huge drop in their score immediately after filing for bankruptcy.
