Yes, you can file for bankruptcy if you have previously filed. However, there are some limitations. If you file for Chapter 7
, you will need to wait eight years to file another Chapter 7 or four years to file a Chapter 13. If you file Chapter 13
, you will need to wait six years to file a Chapter 7 or two years to file another Chapter 13. Keep in mind that you always have the option of filing Chapter 13 — you just may not be eligible for a discharge if you have filed a previous case. If you have filed a previous bankruptcy case, The Jones Law Firm can tell you exactly how long you will need to wait to file again and what options may be available in the meantime.
