How often can I file for bankruptcy?

You can't file for bankruptcy as often as you might think.

Because bankruptcy is considered a last resort there are strict guidelines for how many times someone can file for bankruptcy. There must be a six year gap before you file again.

Additionally, before you file for bankruptcy, make sure you research all your options. Filing for bankruptcy has a lasting effect of 7 to 10 years, so make sure that whatever decision you make is well thought out.
