Credit Counseling Session
After your initial consultation, we will show you where to schedule a phone appointment or online appointment for a credit counseling session, along with documentation requirements. When you finish the credit counseling requirement, you will submit the completed paperwork needed to file your bankruptcy for review. Once we have all the necessary documentation and information, the timing is right, and your complete credit counseling, we are ready to prepare and file your petition.
Filing your Petition, Section 341 hearing
Usually after 30-45 days from filing your petition, you will have a Section 341 hearing to review your case with your case trustee. If your case is a no-asset case nor are there any issues, two months after the Section 341 hearing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition, debts that qualify for release are permanently cleared. Creditors cannot make any efforts to collect on those debts between the time you file and the time of the court’s decision.
Chapter 13: Repayment Plan
If the court has approved your petition for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy repayment plan, you have a time frame of 36 to 60 months to pay monthly on your debts, and then debts that qualify for release are permanently cleared. If you are afraid of making that commitment, there is no reason to worry.
If you should have a change in circumstances during you chapter 13 such as loss of income, many times you may convert your Chapter 13 case to a Chapter 7 and receive a Chapter 7 discharge instead. Bob King can help you investigate all options if you have difficulties with payments under that plan.
