Re open bk case

This answer was rated:

Re open bk case

cortrightlaw : You can reopen it by filing a motion to reopen and paying the filing fee. Or the easier way would be to just refile a new case and pay the filing fee.
Customer:

hi so just refile and pay the fee

Customer:

that would be a easier way

cortrightlaw : Yes as long it was dismissed without prejudice you can just refile, that would be the easiest solution.
Customer:

okay

Customer:

what does prejudice mean

cortrightlaw and other Bankruptcy Law Specialists are ready to help you
Prejudice is when they do not let you refile for 6 months. Also are you in default on a car or house payment and need the automatic stay to be in place? If so the stay is only good for 30 days on the second filing, right after you file you have to file a motiOn to extend the stay past 30 days.
