Florida Bankruptcy – I’ve filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the past, when can I file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy again in Florida?

If you have filed for bankruptcy in the past and are thinking about filing for bankruptcy again then you may or may not be eligible to file again depending on date since you last filed.   If you previously filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Florida then you must wait eight years from the date of filing in order to be able to file for bankruptcy again.   The important date to remember is the date that you filed not the date that you received your discharge.
