Bankruptcy: How long does it take?

A bankruptcy, on average, takes 3-5 months. However, in some circumstances it may take longer. Here is a general time-line:

  • Initial Consultation – This is Day 1.
  • File Case – The day the case is filed is up to you. This can be the day after your consultation, or months later.
  • Hearing – This is typically 30-45 days after the case is filed.
  • Discharge – This is typically 2-3 months after the hearing.
