Orlando Personal Bankruptcy Lawyers Committed to Efficiency

A variety of factors impact the amount of time bankruptcy takes. The first and foremost is the type of bankruptcy you file. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which is what the vast majority of our clients file, typically takes four to six months. Six months tend to be the amount of time it takes if there are assets that need to be liquidated, which is frequently not the case.

If you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the process will take three to five years, depending on the length of the repayment plan chosen. Our attorneys stand beside clients from day one until the repayment plan is completed, assisting every step of the way.

The Immediate Impact of Filing Bankruptcy

It is important to note that, although the bankruptcy process can take anywhere from four months to five years, the impact is immediate. An automatic stay takes effect that prevents your creditors from taking further action against you.
