The major events in the bankruptcy process are number one, filing the petition itself. In a Chapter 7 case, usually about four months after you file, it's over when you receive your discharge. In a Chapter 13 case, it's going to last longer, because you're entering into a three to five-year repayment plan, and then you receive your discharge. There are steps after the case is filed, such as a meeting of creditors, which takes place about a month after you file your case. There are other hearings that are involved that I deal with, that my clients do not have to attend, or deal with. Basically, you file the petition. You get your discharge four months later in a Chapter 7. In a Chapter 13, a little bit longer.
