How Long Does A Lawrenceville Bankruptcy Take?

Posted by Cha'Ron Ballard on March 15, 2019

How long does a Lawrenceville bankruptcy take?

In the event that you are facing serious financial troubles or overwhelming debt, bankruptcy may be an option you are considering. If you are looking into filing for bankruptcy, you may be wondering how long the process can take and when you can expect to experience some relief from the financial pressures you are currently facing. The answer to this question depends on what type of bankruptcy you plan to file, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Timeline

If you are planning on filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Lawrenceville, you can expect the process to last about 4 to 6 months. This time is calculated from the date of filing to the date of your discharge.

Usually, if the process is prolonged, it is simply because it takes time to get the bankruptcy ready to file. It can take time to gather all the documents and information you need to be prepared to file. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you will list all of your debts and assets. If all of your property is protected by a bankruptcy exemption and there is no property needs to be sold to repay your creditors, your bankruptcy will progress more quickly. Delays usually result only if you are unable to get all the proper information needed for your bankruptcy or you have assets that need to be sold to cover certain debts.

If you are planning on filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Lawrenceville, the bankruptcy process from start to finish will be much longer, usually 3-5 years. This is because a Chapter 13 bankruptcy creates a payment plan for your debts that spans several years. Through the plan, your debts are consolidated and you set monthly payments to pay off your debt. After you file and begin your payment plan, discharge will occur when your plan payments are completed and paid.
