How often you can file a bankruptcy depends upon your specific circumstances. Moreover, this includes which type of discharge you received previously.
For Consecutive Chapter 7 Bankruptcies: If you received a discharge in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you must wait eight years from the date the previous case was filed to file a new Chapter 7.
For Consecutive Chapter 13 Bankruptcies: If your debts were discharged in a prior Chapter 13 case, you must wait two years from the date the old Chapter 13 case was filed to file a new Chapter 13.
