How Long Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Take? 


Chapter 13 can take several months while trying to get your repayment plan approved.


In a Chapter 13 case, the duration of the Chapter 13 plan must be a minimum of 36 months, but in certain cases, it will be extended to a maximum of 60 months to complete.

In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, creditors have 60 days after the meeting of creditors to object to the discharge of the debtor. Once this period expires, unless an objection or complaint is filed, the court will issue a discharge order. After administration of assets, the case will then be closed.
