I have a bankruptcy law question. Suppose someone filed and

I have a bankruptcy law question. Suppose someone filed and discharged a chapter 7 bk 5 years ago. The waiting period is 8 years for another chapter 7. But what about an involuntary 7? If someone is not paying debts and squandering assets can I file aninvoluntary bk on someone before 8 years? I can't file an involuntary 13 and I can't afford to file an involuntary 11. Also, what happens if the debtor files a voluntary chapter 7 only five years after the first discharge? Is there an automatic stay at all?If so, does the court give a temporary automatic stay but order the debtor to convert to a 13 or an 11?

I have a future small claims court date unsecured loan

I have a future small claims court date for an unsecured loan of 2500.00. I also just recieved a notice of involuntary lien and a notice of entry of judgement from another company I had an unsecured credit card with. I am scared. There is no way I can pay anyone back at this point. Living pay check to pay check, and most months I am in the negative and if I am not there is only like $20 of wiggle room. I am not in a position to make a commitment to pay anything back. I am a single mother, I do not recieve child support. I work full time at a bank. What can I do? I am afraid they might garnish my wages.

I have a question on the automatic stay

I have a question on the automatic stay for involuntary bankruptcies. a voluntary chapter 7 or chapter 13 bk has a full automatic stay the first time and 30 days the 2nd time within 1 year of the first. How does an involuntary work? Suppose an involuntarybk chapter 7 is filed against someone and is dismissed. Three months later another involuntary 7 gets filed on the same person. Does it still have an automatic stay?
