If you are referring to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you are stuck with debts incurred after filing the bankruptcy unless your case is dismissed without a discharge and later refiled. In a Chapter 13 case, sometimes post petition debts can be paid through plan or the debts can be covered if you voluntarily dismiss the case and refile or convert it to a Chapter 7. In the case of a conversion to a Chapter 7, it would cover all debts up to the date of the conversion. The reform laws that went into effect in October 2005 contain much stricter rules on cases where a bankruptcy has been dismissed and refiled to prevent "serial" filers. Before making a decison, you must consult a local bankruptcy attorney to decide if dismiss your case and refiling is a valid option for your circumstance. Finally, Chapter 7 cases are very difficult to dismiss voluntarily.

Does filing bankruptcy remove bad marks from your credit report?

No. What will happen is all the defaulted accounts listed in the bankruptcy will be marked as such.."included in bankruptcy". The credit history, late payments, judgments, etc. will remain the same. In addition to the scenario in the above answer: The bankruptcy filing itself will be listed in the "public records" portion of your credit report. The disposition needs to be listed also (the discharge). The "bad marks" (i.e., the accounts) will show on your credit for 7 years. The bankruptcy listing will show for 7 years for a completed and discharged Chapter 13 bankruptcy and 10 years for a discharged Chapter 7.

Can someone file judgment on someone who filed bankruptcy and had it discharged 1 year ago?

It depends on whether that creditor was listed on Schedule F at the time of the filing. The filing of Bankruptcy (BK) doesn't in itself wipe out the debt: that debt must be listed on the list of creditors. If a debt was discharged under BK then the creditor(s) on the list of discharged debts cannot take any action against the Debtor: IT'S GONE FOR GOOD! That's what BK is for-- to give a fresh start. If the creditor was such at the time of filing and the debtor forgot to include that creditor on the list, he may be able to later add it on and have that debt also discharged. Now, if the debtor has since incurred a debt after the BK was discharged then that creditor can take action against the debtor.

It generally takes 3-4 months after your meeting of creditors to receive your discharge.

If an account was not listed on the creditor's list of a chapter 7 is it still dischargable under the bankruptcy?

When does a bankruptcy appear on one's credit report i.e. when the bankruptcy petition is filed or when the debt is officially discharged?

When it is filed. A discharge may be opposed by a creditor and there may be listed debts that cannot be discharged, or unlisted debts that may be discharged, so the "discharge" date is irrelevant.

Any debt listed (or should have been listed) in your bankruptcy can be reported as discharged for the ten years the bankruptcy can be reported. Since a student loan cannot be discharged without proving a hardship (the difficulty of which varies from state to state and even court to court), the default can probably be reported as long as it remains unpaid.

If federal income or other taxes are listed as debts to be discharged, the IRS may send a representative to the 341 meeting to question the debtor about the listings, or if the debtor does not list debts owed to the IRS, a representative may be sent o ask the debtor about the omissions. Tax debts must be listed even if the debtor has a payment agreement with the IRS.

If you are referring to a credit report the answer is NO.

Or, you can file a complaint with the federal court in your area and have it investigated.

How do you find if you are listed as a creditor in chapter 7 filling?

You will receive, directly from the bankruptcy court, a notice of filing and information on filing your claim with the court.

The bankruptcy court one files in is determined by the county within which the debtor resides.

Assuming there is a discharge order, probably not.

Can you sue someone who filed bankruptcy?

I assume that the debt or cause of action against the debtor already existed at the time the debtor filed for bankruptcy relief. The filing of an order for bankruptcy stops most other pending lawsuits against the debtor dead in their tracks until the bankruptcy case has been finally resolved.Can you sue them for filing bankruptcy, or for receiving bankruptcy protection, causing you to receive less, or nothing? No. They are legally entitled to file for bankruptcy protection if they qualify. Debts discharged by bankruptcy courts are wiped out forever by law.However, if a debt was voluntarily reaffirmed by the debtor after being discharged in bankruptcy, and proper payment was not continued according to the new agreement between the debtor and creditor, the creditor can sue on the new terms of the debt as reaffirmed.But any dischargeable debt that was listed on the debtor's petition for bankruptcy cannot be touched unless the interested party meets them in court the day of the hearing, and files an objection with some kind of grounds showing that discharge of the debt would be unfair (for example, the debtor had defrauded the creditor). Even then, the judge's decision is final.And certain types of debts are never discharged, even if the debtor has gotten bankruptcy relief for his other debts. Student loans and taxes are two examples of debts that will not be discharged in bankruptcy. The debtor remains fully liable for such debts.

How do you find out a filing date for a bankruptcy case?

One can call the Bankruptcy Clerk for the Division in which a bankruptcy case is filed to get case information such as filing date. The filing date of a case is also normally listed on the Notice of Bankruptcy also. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person.
