Can I File Chapter 7 Before 8 Years?







The answer to this question is technically yes, but there are some important caveats to consider before making the decision to file for bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a liquidation proceeding where the debtor's non-exempt assets are sold off to repay creditors. In most cases, filers are only able to discharge their debts and receive a fresh start after eight years.


However, there are some circumstances where filers may be able to file for Chapter 7 before the eight-year mark. For instance, if the filer can show that they have experienced a significant change in financial circumstances, such as a job loss or medical bills, then they may be able to file sooner.
