You may file for Chapter 7 at any time after filing Chapter 13.
No. You can only convert the 13 to a 7.
You can file a chapter 13 bk, but NOT another chapter 7.
You can file bankruptcy again 7 years after the last time you filed.
If I file chapter 7 or 13 how long can I stay in my house?
You can file Chapter 7 once, every seven years
If you first were filing a chapter 13 you can change that to a chapter 7, it is called "motion to convert".
Well, if chapter 13 doesn't work....reorganization...there is sometimes no recourse but to terminate the business with chapter 7.
The cost to file Chapter 7 will vary depending on the type of bankruptcy. Chapter 13 costs $281. Chapter 7 costs $306.
if you filed chapter 13 and it was discharged in 2005 can you file chapter 7 in 2009
How soon after filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, can you file either Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 Banruptcy again?
You can file Chapter 13, but you would need to pay all creditors in full because you are not eligible to receive a discharge. If you want file Chapter 13 and receive a discharge, you must wait to file until 6 years have passed since your Chapter 7 case. You would to wait 7 years if you want to file another Chapter 7 case.
An unfortunate aspect of Chapter 13 bankruptcy plans is that the budget is very strict and hard to keep. An individual having problems with the chapter 13 bankruptcy can convert into a chapter 7 bankruptcy or re-file altogether. Make sure to look into the changes and different effects that a chapter 7 (as compared to Chapter 13) will have on you.
No. Only one bankruptcy at a time.
Since its dismissed w/ prejudice - Wait 180 days and file an individual chapter 7. Your spouse does not have to file.
Divorce will not affect filing chapter 7. If the divorce is final, you will have to file separate chapter 7s. If the divorce is not final, or has not happened, you can file a joint chapter 7.
A chapter 13 bankruptcy can be filed if it has been at least 4 years from the date of the discharge of a chapter 7. Nonsense. You can file a chapter 13 the day after the 7 is closed. You may not be eligible for a discharge, but the point of doing a "chapter 20" is usually to dump the unsecured debt in the 7 and use the 13 to get caught up on the mortgage, for which no discharge is necessary.
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.
You would be able to file for chapter 7 but not your husband.
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.
You can file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 as a homeowner. If you are trying to save the home from foreclosure, then Chapter 13 would be the proper chapter.
No. You can only have one bankruptcy proceeding at a time. You can convert the 13 to a 7.
Eight years after the discharge of a previous chapter 7, four years after the completion of a chapter 13.
