Bankruptcy is not part of financial planning. 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.

What were the chapter 7 bankruptcy laws in 2001?

Bankruptcy laws changed dramatically in 2005 and make it considerably harder for people to file chapter 7 bankruptcy, those people who do not qualify for chapter 7 are left with the option of chapter 7. Some of the major changes with chapter 7 are:In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the income of the person filing will be subject to a two-part test. First, your income will be calculated with exemptions such as rent and food to determine whether you can afford to pay 25 percent of your unsecured debt such as your credit card bills. Second, your income will be compared to your state's median (middle) income.You won't be allowed to file for Chapter 7 if your income is above your state's median income and you can afford to pay 25 percent of your unsecured debt. Even if your income is below the state's median income and you can pay 25 percent of your unsecured debt, the court may still deny your Chapter 7 filing. There will be very few exceptions to this test, no matter how sympathetic your case is.


Can you convert your Chapter 13 bankruptcy to Chapter 7 if you had a previous Chapter 7 that was discharged 8 years ago?

No. A Chapter 13 that is converted to Chapter 7 must have been ORIGINALLY filed at least 8 years from the prior Chapter 7. So, if you filed Chapter 7 in 2001, then filed Chapter 13 in 2005, you can't wait until 2009 and then convert the 13 to 7 since it was filed within 4 years of the prior 7. In this case, you would have to wait until 2009 and then DISMISS the Chapter 13 and re-file a new Chapter 7 after the 8 years from the prior 7 expired.
