NJ Bankruptcy Law FAQ

Q) How long will it take to complete my bankruptcy case?

A) The duration of a bankruptcy proceeding depends on the type of bankruptcy petition that is filed with the court. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy may result in your debts being discharged in approximately four (4) to six (6) months. If a Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is filed, it may take up to five (5) years to finalize, as in those types of bankruptcies you are making a partial payment with regard to some of your debts.
