REFILING BANKRUPTCY IN GEORGIA
1. How many times can a person file for bankruptcy in
There is no set number of cases a person can file. Whether a person can file a second or more bankruptcy cases depend on that person's factual situation. However, most people are eligible to file a case whenever they want to file. The type of case they can file may depend on what happened in the previous case.
2. When can a person file another Chapter 7 in
A person is allowed to get a discharge in a Chapter 7 once every 8 years. The time period is calculated by using the filing dates of the cases. For example, if a person filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case on October 15, 2005, that person would have to wait until October 16, 2013 to be eligible for a new Chapter 7 case. In our example a person could file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case any time after October 16, 2013.

finished my case?
