What if I Previously Filed Bankruptcy?
As a law firm concentrating in bankruptcy law, we receive many calls from people who have previously filed bankruptcy and want to know if they are prohibited from obtaining further bankruptcy relief. The answer depends on the type of bankruptcy you filed and the time that has passed since you last filed for bankruptcy.
If you have previously obtained debt relief through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must wait eight years from the time of your previous filing before you can file for another Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If you have obtained debt relief through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must wait four years from the time of your previous filing before you can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
