Between 21 and 40 days, after the petition is filed, the case trustee will hold a meeting of creditors. (Bankruptcy Code § 341; the so-called “341 meetings.)

Typically within 60 to 90 days after the 341 hearing is completed, you will receive your Discharge Order in the mail and your bankruptcy case is over. This Discharge Order acts as a permanent injunction that prohibits any attempts to collect debts from you personally that were discharged in your bankruptcy.
