There is no waiting time as such although some would say that filing your petition within 90 days of entry of judgment is best. Consult an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. It's almost always worth the investment.

    You can file anytime you are eligible for bankruptcy. Before a judgment, after a judgment, or during the time a court case is pending. However, if this judgment relates to an offense committed while intoxicated or from committing a criminal offense, the debt may be ineligible to be eliminated in bankruptcy.
