The next step is to file the case with the court. Four weeks after that, you and your attorney will attend a brief meeting with your creditors. After this meeting, you will need to complete a financial management course, which can be completed online or over the phone.
Approximately 60 days after the meeting with creditors, you can expect to receive a discharge order that eliminates all of your debt. At that point, you can begin to experience life after bankruptcy.
