How soon after chapter 7 can I file chapter 13?

However, you are permitted to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy anytime after filing Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is a repayment of none, some or all of your debt over three to five years. Most or all of your creditors are lumped together into one large pool. Then, you make payments each month to the lawyer assigned to your case, called a liquidator. The liquidator distributes your payment to the creditors.There is some issue that you should know about while filing chapter 13 after chapter 7.1. If you file Chapter 13 within four years of filing Chapter 7, you cannot discharge your debts after you complete the three- to five-year Chapter 13 plan. You can still file the Chapter 13 to keep creditors from suing you, garnishing your paychecks or levying your bank account. This may require filing another Chapter 7 bankruptcy when you have passed the eight-year mark.2. If you file Chapter 13 four years after filing Chapter 7, you can have a very low monthly Chapter 13 payment plan and receive a full discharge of all remaining balances after you complete the three- to five-year plan. For example, you could pay as little as $100 a month for three years in a Chapter 13, paying very little to your creditors and yet still discharging the remaining balances owed.

Can you file personal bankruptcy and medical bankruptcy within a short time period?

If you are referring to a chapter 20 (chapter 7 + chapter 13), then yes it is possible. The BK court doesnt differentiate between the types of debts (i.e. taxes, mortgages, medical debt, or credit cards) so you cannot file a chapter 7 for personal debt, and then expect to be allowed to file a chapter 7 for medical debt soon after.

Can you refile immediately after your bankruptcy has been dismissed?

One can file a bankruptcy case at any time. The only issues upon filing will be:1. Under what Chapter will one be permitted to file;2. Whether one will get the benefit of the automatic stay while the case is pending; and3. Whether one will get a discharge at the end of the case.If a prior case was filed but no discharge order was ever issued, a stay of all collection efforts will issue automatically and the debtor may be eligible for a discharge at the end of the case. If a discharge order was indeed entered in the prior case, a Debtor must wait for specified periods if he or she is to benefit from an automatic stay and receive a discharge in the new case. The following is a table summarizing the waiting period required by law to stay creditors and get a discharge of debts:Prior Case Chapter 7 Chapter 13Chapter 7 8 years 4 yearsChapter 11 8 years 4 yearsChapter 12 6 years 4 yearsChapter 13 6 years 2 years- BensonBankruptcy.comYou can refile after your bankruptcy case has been discharged by the court. I filed a chapter 7 in December, it was discharged March 15 and I filed a chapter 13 on the 22nd. You can file chapter 13 as soon as your bankruptcy is dismissed but can only file chapter 7 every 7 years."Dismissed" means the court threw your case out without "Discharging" any of your debt.You can either file Chap 13 immediately, or go to another Chap 7 filing after waiting 6 months...sort of a penalty period. Unless that has changed to, as someone said, 6 or 7 has most of the information you will need.You cannot file a Chapter 7 case for 6 years after the filing date of a prior Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 which received Discharge. You can file a Chapter 13 nearly anytime so long as no other case is pending (with some exceptions). (FYI filing a Chapter 13 immediately after a Chapter 7 is called a "Chapter 20"). As of today (2/11/05) there is legislation pending in the United States Senate which I believe will increase the time you have to wait to 8 years, but this law may or may not get passed.However, if the case was dismissed (and not Discharged), one can normally re-file immediately after dismissal unless the Court places a bar to re-filing, or unless the circumstances create a bar to re-filing. Sometimes, if the Court feels that a debtor acted in bad faith or for some other reason, the Court may bar the debtor from re-filing for some period of time. Or, once a Motion for Relief is filed by a creditor, if the debtor voluntarily dismisses his or her own case, then that debtor is automatically barred from filing a new case for 180 days. Please keep in mind that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice, it is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant in any way.
