Y is for Years Between Discharges

The Bankruptcy Code puts a time limit between discharges. So the following rules do not apply if you did not receive a discharge in your prior bankruptcy or are not seeking a discharge in your new bankruptcy or paid all your creditors 100% in the previous bankruptcy. If you want to try and file before these time periods expire, talk to your attorney first because the UST will be examining it.

Chapter 7 to Chapter 7 = 8 years
Chapter 7 to Chapter 13 = 4 years
Chapter 13 to Chapter 7 = 6 years
Chapter 13 to Chapter 13 = 2 years
