How Fast Can I File Bankruptcy?


You can file bankruptcy in as little as two hours if it’s an emergency.  Most of the time, you don’t have to file that quickly; and, I don’t recommend waiting until the last minute.  But I understand that pressure that you’re under and that time flies in a crisis.

Most of my clients file bankruptcy within 1 – 6 weeks of their first appointment.  It also depends on your payment plan and the issues in your case.

Regardless of whether you file bankruptcy in two hours or two weeks, I use a cooperative process that ensures the accuracy of your petition and provides you with the knowledge and information you need to make an informed decision.

If you are considering bankruptcy, you should contact my office for a free consultation.  The consultation is a no risk no obligation opportunity for you to figure out if bankruptcy is right for you.  Even if you don’t retain me that day or don’t plan to file for a year, it’s good to have an existing relationship with a bankruptcy attorney who you trust, because your situation can change rapidly.
