Is it true that if I file for bankruptcy in Illinois, I won’t be able to get a credit card, car loan or mortgage for 10 years?

Not true. The record of your bankruptcy filing may appear on your credit report for that long but there are no legal restrictions from you obtaining credit cards, car loans, or mortgages in less than 10 years.
