How long will it take for my bankruptcy to be discharged?

It depends on whether you file a chapter 7 or a chapter 13.

In a chapter 7, about 3 months.

In a chapter 13, anywhere from 3 years to 5 years after you file.

how long

Chapter 7

Day 1… file the case and get a case number.

Day 30 -40… 341 Meeting of Creditors.

Day 90…Last day for creditors to object to your bk discharge

Day 91… Discharge (so long as you’ve taken the second bk class).

Chapter 13

Same timing, except that you will not receive your discharge until the end of you plan.
