When will I be discharged from bankruptcy?

Our Professional Answer

After you file a bankruptcy, the process is usually very predictable. If you file a Chapter 7, there is a 341 meeting with creditors with the trustee about a month later. Typically, within a month to two months after that time, you will receive a bankruptcy discharge, meaning, at that point, you do not owe your debts. Chapter 13’s process is a little longer because there is a meeting and a confirmation of your plan and a longer period where you must make payments. In Chapter 11, typically the discharge doesn’t come until the end of the case.

Depending on which chapter you file, the circumstances are different, and you should consult with attorney about this one.
