Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: How long will it take?

On July 28, 2011, in Bankruptcy, by Robbie L. Vaughn, Esq.

How long will my chapter 7 bankruptcy case take to close?

Well, most of our chapter 7 bankruptcy cases take roughly 3 months from case filing until discharge/case closure (Note: Discharge and case closure are not the same thing).

Additionally, when your attorney files his or her chapter 7 bankruptcy cases could add to the length of time you are waiting for  your bankruptcy case to close. Some attorneys “batch file” their chapter 7 cases. They hold their chapter 7 cases and file them together on a particular day (i.e. the end of the month).  We file our bankruptcy cases as they are ready to be filed. As always, we hope that you found this information helpful.
