= 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.

An unfortunate aspect of Chapter 13 bankruptcy plans is that the budget is very strict and hard to keep. An individual having problems with the chapter 13 bankruptcy can convert into a chapter 7 bankruptcy or re-file altogether. Make sure to look into the changes and different effects that a chapter 7 (as compared to Chapter 13) will have on you.

Bankruptcy is a federal procedure (a few states may have state bankruptcy laws), so the law is the same in every state, except for local forms and procedures). You can still file a "Chapter 20" (7+13).
If you wreck your car after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy you can file it on your insurance. You can then replace your car based on the bankruptcy order.

No. You can only have one bankruptcy proceeding at a time. You can convert the 13 to a 7.

You can file again in 8 years. You can only file Chapter 7 once every 8 years. You could file a Chapter 13 or vice versa but not the same chapter.
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.
