Hi and thank you for your question. In the future, you can request me to answer any further questions.
You can file a chapter 13 right after the chapter 7, but you will not be entitled to a discharge if you were discharged in the chapter 7.
You can do it to save a home, catch up on a mortgage etc, where you don't need a discharge.
You must have 4 years from the ch7 filing in order to file a ch13 and get a discharge
Thanks for your questions, good luck,
Cna you file a Ch 13 if its been only a year since 7 filing to get you time to work with a mortgae company to try to keep your home?
