How long do you have to wait to file chapter 13 bankruptcy in Louisiana after you filed chapter 7 bankruptcy in Arkansas a few years ago in?

Assuming the chapter 7 led to a discharge, you may be able to file chapter 13 immediately, but the automatic stay may not last long without a motion to extend it indefinitely. If the filing date of the 7 was 10 years ago, you should not have this problem. Not all bankruptcy courts have interpreted the statutes and regulations the same way, so consult a local bankruptcy lawyer. Bankruptcy is a federal procedure in most states, and is the same from state to state, more or loss.

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.
