"How Long Does Bankruptcy Take To File"


Declaring bankruptcy is a difficult decision, but sometimes it's the best option for those struggling with debt. But how long does it take to file for bankruptcy? It may surprise you to learn that filing can be completed in as little as a few months.


The exact length of time it takes to file depends on several factors, including the type of bankruptcy being filed and how organized the debtor is when preparing their financial documents. The process begins with drafting and submitting a petition to the court, which usually takes one to two weeks. After that, creditors will be notified by mail and creditors' meetings will be scheduled. These meetings usually occur within four or five weeks after filing.


Once all of these steps are complete, debtors must attend credit counseling sessions and submit additional paperwork before the judge discharges their debts.
