If a chap 13 bankruptcy is discharged and a bill is left unpaid can third party collections attempt to collect on it?

A bankruptcy can be closed or dismissed. It cannot be "discharged." The debtor is discharged from having to pay any dischargeable bills. If the 13 was successfully completed, and the debt was listed as an unsecured debt if the unsecured creditors were paid something under the plan, it might not have been discharged. Many third party debt collection law firms and agencies are trying to collect discharged debts in violation of the permanent stay. It is illegal.

If an account was not listed on the creditor's list of a chapter 7 is it still dischargable under the bankruptcy?

Can you file parking tickets under a chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Parking tickets cannot be discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. They can, however, be discharged under Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as "liquidation" bankruptcy. This generally means that all of a debtor's non-exempt property may be sold by a bankruptcy trustee, though the laws for property exemption are different in each state. For example, in New York, most debtors are able to keep all of their property. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a 'reorganization of debts', and allows the individual to keep their property and income while paying off all or part of their debt over a three to five year period. In the case of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, the parking tickets can be considered "unsecured" debts (similar to credit cards and medical bills), and can thus be treated as such for repayment.

Can you file bankruptcy after 6 years on medical bills?

Do you mean 6 years after receiving a discharge in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or are you referring to medical bills that are six years old? If you've already received a discharge in a Chapter 7, you must wait 8 years between filing. If the bills are 6 years old, they may be too old to collect because of the statute of limitations, but you can still discharge them.
