If you filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in MI and it is discharged, you can amend whatever document you want at any time. It does not matter whether it is during the process of bankruptcy or after the discharge.

You can have your Chapter 7 claim dismissed as long as the dismissal will not harm your creditors. This is filed with the court in much the same way as when you initially filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy

If your first chpt 13 was dismissed, you can file right away. If your first chpt 13 was discharged, I believe you can still file right away (in some jurisdictions), but you will not be eligible for discharge in the second BK.

The new bankruptcy reform legislation will dramatically change how long someone must wait to file bankruptcy if they have previously received a discharge. Under the current law, a debtro can file Chapter 7 again if it has been more than 6 years since he or she was discharged from the previous Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Under the new bankruptcy law taking effect on October 17, 2005, Chapter 7 cannot be filed unless the debtor was discharged from the previous Chapter 7 or bankruptcy more than eight years ago. The debtor cannot file a Chapter 13 unless: (1) the debtor received a discharge under Chapter 7, 11 or 12 more than four years ago; or (2) the debtor received a discharge under Chapter 13 more than two years ago.

:A bankruptcy under chapter 7 or 11, or a non-discharged or dismissed chapter 13 bankruptcy generally remains on your credit file for 10 years from the date filed. A discharged chapter 13 bankruptcy generally remains on your credit file for 7 years from the date filed.

One generally cannot file a Chapter until 6 years from the filing date of any previous Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 that received discharge. So, one usually has to wait 6 years after any previous case to file a Chapter 7, but can usually file a Chapter 13 anytime so long as no other case is pending. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person.

Bankruptcy is handled in the Federal courts, in a district for your area. Some districts may use certain rules/definitions to help co-ordinate the process with local customs and laws, but the major things, like timing, are the same everyplace: Under the bankruptcy laws effective on October 17, 2005, Chapter 7 cannot be filed unless the debtor was discharged from the previous Chapter 7 or bankruptcy more than eight years ago. The debtor cannot file a Chapter 13 unless: (1) the debtor received a discharge under Chapter 7, 11 or 12 more than four years ago; or (2) the debtor received a discharge under Chapter 13 more than two years ago.

The time-frame for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case in Idaho is the same as all other states. The discharge should arrive between three and four months after filing. This assumes that no creditor nor the Trustee has filed an objection to such discharge.

You do not have to be unemployed to file for chapter 7 or any bankruptcy.
