Having a bankruptcy on your file will, unfortunately, exclude you from most high limit credit cards.With that said, if you have enough funds, you could apply for a secured credit card. With secured cards, your deposit will equal your limit, so you can theoretically have as high a limit as you want.
You can check out our best secured credit cards here.
Limits are generally based on your credit history and your current debt to income ratio. If you need a higher limit, check with your bank. A lot of banks will offer a VISA or a MasterCard with a fairly high limit ($1500 with a score of 545 for me last year with PNC), even for poor credit scores, if you have had an account open with them for a while. Another option is to check with any credit card companies you currently have accounts with, so long as you are not behind and have not been for the last 6 months, and ask if they will increase your limit due to the new income. But if you have paid late to that creditor even once in the last six months, don't bother. They won't consider you at all.
