How The Process Works

How the Chapter 7 Process Works

Chapter 7 is a straightforward process.  Here is a summary of the necessary steps to complete a Chapter 7 bankruptcy:

  • determine whether you qualify to file
  • provide the necessary documents to prepare the case
  • complete the credit counseling requirement
  • review and sign the bankruptcy forms
  • attend the section 341 meeting
  • wait two months
  • obtain your discharge

In most cases, the Chapter 7 debtor becomes debt free in about three months.  After the case is concluded, steps can be taken to rebuild your credit.
