The U.S. Bankruptcy Code allows debtors to file for bankruptcy multiple times, but has changed the number of years you must wait between filings. Previously, a debtor could file under either Chapter 7 or 13 after a six-year waiting period. In 2005, this changed to coincide with the new rules for bankruptcy filings under Chapter 13.Chapter 13 After Chapter 7Section 1328(f) of the U.S. Bankruptcy code restricts debtors who previously filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 from filing under Chapter 13 for four years from the date of the Order for Relief.Chapter 13 After Chapter 13Under the same section, debtors who previously filed under Chapter 13 can again file under Chapter 13 after a mere two years from the date of the Order for Relief, although you may be required to finish payments under your reorganization plan before the judge will accept your filing.After a Dismissed Bankruptcy FilingIf you filed for bankruptcy, but the judge rejected or dismissed your filing, or you voluntarily or involuntarily withdrew from the proceedings, you may file under either chapter 180 days after the dismissal/withdrawal date.Rules for Filing Bankruptcy Multiple TimesWhile the U.S. Bankruptcy Code does not restrict the number of times a debtor may file bankruptcy, bankruptcy judges can--and do. Many judges routinely reject additional bankruptcy filings when they feel a debtor is abusing the protection or failing to honor his financial obligations to his creditors.ConversionsIf you wish to file bankruptcy under Chapter 13 because the provisions seem more appealing, you should consider converting your open Chapter 7 bankruptcy to a Chapter 13, instead.
