At LifeBack Law we file both chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. A chapter 7 is referred to as a liquidation bankruptcy, where as a chapter 13 bankruptcy is a restructuring of your debt.
The timing of your bankruptcy discharge will depend on which chapter you file. With a chapter 7 bankruptcy you will receive your discharge roughly 90 days after filing. For a chapter 13 your discharge date will be three to five years after your case was filed.
