Denver Lawyers: Multiple Bankruptcies

The federal bankruptcy law has several hard and fast rules when it comes to filing multiple bankruptcies. If you filed bankruptcy in the past and you're considering filing again, contact our experienced lawyers at The Law Offices of W. Robert Montgomery. We understand this is a difficult and stressful time for you, and we will do all that we can to answer your questions, alleviate your worries and help you make effective decisions.

You may have several options depending on what type of bankruptcy you previously filed and when it was filed.

After a Previous Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Filing

If you filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Colorado in the past, usually you will be eligible to file again after the following periods of time have passed:

  • Eight years for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Four years for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy

However, in some specific circumstances, a Chapter 7 can be approved within a shorter time period. Contact our attorneys to find out if you could be eligible.
