Your attorney can tell you about the different chapters of the bankruptcy code you can file your case under. Common chapters include Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. A chapter 7 bankruptcy case is open for about three months or 100 days. A chapter 13 bankruptcy is more complex and will be open for three to five years.
While your case is open, you are able to continue your life as usual as long as you keep your attorney informed of any significant changes to your financial life. When you work with the Pérez-Kudzma Law Office we represent you and keep you informed throughout the duration of your case.
