Can I File Bankruptcy More Than Once?

Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys in Indianapolis

Adeptly Determining Your Eligibility for Bankruptcy in Indiana

Major financial setbacks are not once-in-a-lifetime events for many people. The fact that you have filed bankruptcy in the past is not necessarily a barrier to seeking relief again.

The straight answer to the question, "Can I file bankruptcy more than once?" is yes. Our focused, experienced lawyers will hear you out and ask the right questions to determine your real, practical debt relief options.

Answers to All Your Bankruptcy Law and Debt Relief Questions

Understanding details of your financial past, including a prior bankruptcy filing, will enable us to readily determine your eligibility to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, Chapter 13 bankruptcy or Chapter 11 bankruptcy today. Essentially:

  • An individual can file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy only once in an eight-year period.
  • Some filers file Chapter 13 petitions soon after Chapter 7, but four years must pass if that Chapter 13 case involves discharge of other debts.
  • Beyond these basic guidelines, only a knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer can assess your unique situation and dependably lay out your legal options.
