Your credit score is determined by looking at a combination of information from credit cards, available credit, payment history, and other financial information. Negative information like bankruptcies and liens can drastically lower your credit score, but the information won’t stay there forever. After a certain number of years bankruptcies and liens will stop affecting your credit score. Late payments and the amount of available credit can also strongly affect your credit score.
