Thank you for the information. It appears that you filed under Chapter 7:
I dont know the chapter but I didnt not have a payment plan. I filed and everything was discharged completely... Question: Hi, I filed for bankruptcy in 2005, right before the law changed, and it was discharged in 2006. How long do I have to wait before I can file again?
Response: 8 years, which would be in 2014. Generally, you can file for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief every eight years of getting a discharge from the previous Chapter 7 filing. See 11 U.S.C. Section 109(g); Section 349(a); Sections 727(a)(8), 727(a)(2), and 727(a)(11). You can file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief after four years of getting a discharge from a previous Chapter 7 filing or two years after a previous Chapter 13 bankruptcy discharge. See 11 U.S.C. Section 1328(f).
