A bankruptcy has nothing to do with your ability to marry. You can marry at any time.

You are not prevented from moving as a result of filing bankruptcy. Filing bankruptcy is not a crime.

Personal? Business? Chapter 7? 11? 13?

The best time to purchase a new home after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy depends on how long your bankruptcy will be. If you have your payments on a five year plan, then you may have to wait a little longer.

It is usually 4 to 5 months from filing to Discharge.

A chapter 7 bankruptcy filing remains on your credit report for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy remains for seven years. Under chapter 13 bankruptcy you repay at least a portion of the debt, so it is removed a little sooner.

It will approximately take Ten years from the date of original filing of bankruptcy.

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.

Though legally it can be reported for up to 10 years after filing, most credit bureaus remove Chapter 13s after 7 years.

When you file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you have the option to keep your home and 1 vehicle. If you are able to make the last 2 payments on the car, you can keep it and not include it in the bankruptcy.

You can get a car lease immediately after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Since it would be a post-petition debt, there is no waiting period provided that you qualify income wise. Some lenders may require you to have a discharge, however, it is not required under the law to lease post-filing.

Your question is somewhat complex, and there may be variations in the process due to laws of the state of jurisdiction for the bankruptcy filing. An excellent primer about either chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy is "The New Bankruptcy, will it work for You?" 3rd edition by Stephen Elias, published in 2009 by Nolo; 346.078 E42N Dewey decimal. Also you might contact a paralegal or lawyer specializing in filing bankruptcy in the state of jurisdiction.

It would depend on the circumstances and which country you are filing in.

Unfortunately, filing for bankruptcy has a major negative effect on your credit, which as you probably already know can effect a lot of your future money issues. Bankruptcy, whether chapter 7 or chapter 13 stays on your credit report for at least 7-10 years after filing and just because it is off does not mean that your score will automatically increase-that is something you have to work for!

Yes, after a bankruptcy has been discharged (a 10 year period if chapter 7 was filed), the possibility of filing bankruptcy again is open. If you live long enough, you can file several times. This gives new meaning to the phrase, "Live long and prosper."

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.

The amount of time a bankruptcy stays on your credit report after discharge differs between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. With Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the Chapter 7 stays on your credit report for 10 years. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, after discharge, it shows for 7 years on your credit report.

In almost every state, bankruptcy will stay on your record for 7-10 years. This is something to consider when filing because this can have a major effect on your ability to get a house, car, etc in the future.

A Chapter 7 bankrutpcy may display on your credit for 10 years from the date of filing. Chapter 13 may stay for 10 yeas also, but it is customary for those to be removed after 7 years.
