How Long Does Bankruptcy Take?

Much of the time frame for bankruptcy depends on the individual case; however, some cases can be settled within a matter of months. For more difficult cases with numerous considerations, the time frame can be longer.

Bankruptcy Costs

For some bankruptcy options, the court has established set fees and costs associated with filing. For other bankruptcy filings, attorney fees are established based on the complexity of each individual situation. Farrish Johnson Law Office is committed to developing a bankruptcy plan that is appropriate for each person or business.


Types of Bankruptcy Farrish Johnson Law Office Handles

A Farrish Johnson attorney can personally review your circumstances and see if you qualify for one of these legal processes:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
    Chapter 7 is the most common type of bankruptcy filing. This includes liquidating property to satisfy debt.
  • Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
    Chapter 11 is most often utilized by business. This option does allow your business to remain operating during the bankruptcy process.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
    This bankruptcy option is more dramatic and involves development of a repayment plan, usually between 3 and 5 years.

A very big concern for consumers is whether they will be able to keep ownership or financing of their primary residences and vehicles when choosing bankruptcy. These are normal issues that often stop people from filing until they really sit down with a bankruptcy lawyer and get all the facts. Farrish Johnson can help you choose whether reorganizing or liquidating your debts is best for your financial future.

There is the possibility you and your spouse will not qualify for bankruptcy proceedings at this time or that a different legal course fits your present situation. At Farrish Johnson, we are also experts in helping consumers negotiate compromises with their creditors and stay out of bankruptcy.


What about Business Bankruptcy Options?

Volatile economic conditions can mean hardship for many businesses. Bankruptcy may provide an option for your business to start over without having to close. Both Chapter 11 bankruptcy and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy are available to businesses as options. This includes LLCs, Sole Proprietors and Corporations. Business bankruptcy can be structured in a way to protect personal assets as well.
