How often can I file bankruptcy?

This can be very complicated and there is no one sentence answer. However, the rule of thumb is that you can file a chapter 7 bankruptcy and receive a discharge every 8 years. The old law was every 7 years. You can file a chapter 13 and receive a discharge every 4 years. When you start combining filing chapter 7 and 13 and having one dismissed or any other of the combinations you might make of your situation, it can be complicated, which is why you should see me before you try to figure out what your options really are.

  • Can I go to Jail for not Paying my Bills?

    No, not unless you committed a crime in the creation of the debt (for example, fraud). Simply borrowing money and not being able to pay it back is not a crime. Many creditors representatives will tell you lies on the telephone and say that they will have you put in jail. Perhaps they are too ignorant to know they are wrong or that it is illegal for them even to say that. See More Bankruptcy Q&A
