There are limitations as to when an individual may file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. If the client has previously filed a bankruptcy case, this information should be provided to the attorney. The attorney will need to determine whether the previous bankruptcy case filing will result in any limitations on the filing of a new case. This can be a complicated issue that plays out differently from case to case. The best approach is to contact a bankruptcy attorney who can analyze the information and provide a clear answer to the client as to whether a Chapter 7 case can be filed. In some cases, a client can simply wait out a period of time to become eligible to file another Chapter 7 case. In other situations, a client may want to file a Chapter 13 case, and then dismiss it later once the client is eligible again to file a Chapter 7 case.
