I filed a chapter 7 in July 2005 with my now ex-husband and received my discharge in November 2005. I just had my chapter 13 plan confirmed not too long ago but I want my business concluded before my marriage in September. The 8 year waiting period is between filings, not discharges correct? What they consider is my situation at the time of filing, not at the time of discharge correct? Because if I convert in July and get married in September will that kick out my case? I don't want this hanging over our heads when we are starting our lives together. From what I've read once my case is filed it's done, the 3-4 months is just administrative stuff. What happens to my lawyers fees that he put in the payment plan? Are those discharged with the 7?
