Best Answer

You have to wait 2 years, in Tennessee anyway, between filings.

= Ans == Bankruptcy is ALWAYS in a Federal Court and under Federal Laws. (Yes, some Federal Districts use the prevailing rules regarding some things in their area...like what may be personal property compared to real property, but the overall rules are universal). YOUR STATE GENERALLY MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. Bankruptcy laws were reformed in 2005 making the time limit between chapter 7 filings 8 years from the time of discharge and the time for filing a chapter 13 after a chapter 7 discharge 4 years.

How often can you file chapter 7 bankruptcy?

A previous Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing will have an effect on your eligibility to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. For instance, if your Chapter 13 was dismissed, you will have to wait 180 days from the date of dismissal, whereas if you filed Chapter 13 and repaid at least 70 percent of your debts, you will be able to file a petition for Chapter 7 bankruptcy anytime thereafter. In contrast, if you received a complete discharge under Chapter 13, or you did not repay at least 70 percent of your unsecured debt, you will have to wait at least six years to receive a discharge.
