Tampa Attorneys – Filing Bankruptcy More Than One Time

Understanding Your Rights and Putting Bankruptcy Myths to Bed

As knowledgeable bankruptcy attorneys, we understand that you have many questions surrounding your financial situation. Due to the rough economy, many individuals need to seek relief from their creditors through the Bankruptcy Code. There are some limits as to how often people can file, but our lawyers at Cohen & DePaul will guide you on your path to financial freedom, answering any questions you may have along the way.

Normally, an individual must wait eight years to re-file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition. The time limits for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy are much shorter and range from two to four years. No matter which chapter you need assistance with, we will be there when you need us.


In the past, many individuals or families got into financial trouble because of credit card debt due to the loss of a job or an extended illness. Today, people in Florida have found themselves in financial trouble because of decreasing home prices and mortgages with adjustable rates or balloon payments. No matter how you got into debt, we would like the opportunity to help you get out through either Chapter 13Chapter 7 or even Chapter 11.
