How long after filing a chapter 13 can you file a chapter 7?

Richmond, VA |

I had a discharged chapter 13 over 4 years ago. I need to file a chapter 7. When can I do so?

  1. It is 2 years before you can file another Chapter 13 and 6 years before you can file a Chapter 7 (if the plan paid for less than 70% of the unsecured debt). The time runs from the date of filing.
