For your question, I'll assume that your prior filing was also a Chapter 7. Generally, if 8 years has passed since the filing date of your prior Chapter 7, you can obtain another discharge in a new Chapter 7. This is assuming that Chapter 7 is right for you. If not enough time has passed, and you need protection, there are other options to deal with your situation. I suggest that you discuss your situation with an attorney to decide what course of action is best for you. Feel free to call me. My office is in Mt. Laurel. See also
