Filing with a Bankruptcy Attorney
It is possible to file bankruptcy more than once. However, as your bankruptcy attorney, we believe it is important that you understand the restrictions the government places on frequency of filing.
Filing for Chapter 7
If you have previously filed for Chapter 7, you must wait eight years after filing to file another Chapter 7. If you previously filed for Chapter 13 and received a discharge, you are required to wait six years after filing the previous Chapter 13.
Filing for Chapter 13
From a prior Chapter 7 filing, you must wait four years to file for Chapter 13, while if you previously filed Chapter 13, you must wait two years.
