Jose is correct. Do not sign a lease purchase unless it gives you a time line of 3 to 5 years (just to be safe). You will also need to start establishing credit as soon as you come out of bankruptcy. The best way is to get two or three lousy credit cards. They will have very low limits, require a deposit and kill you on intrest rates. They will have heavy annual fees as well but in 3 years of on time payments, they will repair your credit!
Your goal is to have 3 lines of credit open and paid on time for 3 years is a row. If you are paying on a car and have not defaulted, that will count as a trade line.
here is a link for the credit cards.
The bankruptcy court will want to know you are signing a lease. You will want to speak to your lawyer for the answer to your question.
