It is possible for the court to disapprove a bankruptcy case. The case is not filed in good faith, or if a person is not eligible to be a debtor in a bankruptcy case, then the court can dismiss the case. It is possible that a person could be eligible for one kind of a bankruptcy but not another. For example, when a consumer files a chapter 7, he is not eligible for another chapter 7 for eight years. However, after four years pass from the date the first bankruptcy, that consumer would be eligible to receive a discharge in a Chapter 13 case. So, if he tried to file a chapter 7 case too soon the court would disapprove the filing and dismiss the case. Also, if a consumer has not taken the mandatory credit counseling prior to filing his case, the court will automatically dismiss the case.
