Here is the conclusion to our three-part blog 6 Facts to Know about Filing for Bankruptcy Again.
Fact 5 – When debt from a first bankruptcy case wasn’t discharged, there may be problems trying to get it discharged by filing for bankruptcy again.
All of the previous facts in this blog have been based on discussions regarding filing for bankruptcy again when a previous bankruptcy case was successfully resolved. However, this may not be the case for some people, which will create a new set of issues and potential challenges to contend with if these people want to try to file for bankruptcy again.
The specific issues that a person will need to deal with in a subsequent bankruptcy case when the previous case was not successfully resolved will depend on the disposition of the first case. Specifically, it will vary according to whether:
- The previous bankruptcy case was dismissed by the courts – A court may dismiss a bankruptcy petition for any number of reasons (only some of which may include a failure to pay a court’s bankruptcy fees, a failure to appear in court and/or a failure to comply with a court order). When a previous case has been dismissed, in general, a person will have to wait at least 180 days before filing for bankruptcy again.
- The courts flat-out denied a discharge of debt in the previous case – Typically, if a court has refused to allow a person to discharge his debts as part of a previous bankruptcy petition, then that individual cannot get these same debts discharged in a subsequent bankruptcy case. There are, however, various factors that can come into play with these cases, so it’s best to consult with an experienced attorney to learn more about your options if you find yourself in this position.
