The bankruptcy process, explained
- If you are filing for bankruptcy for the first time, you could be discharged from your debt in as little as 9 months.
- If your net family income exceeds standard federal guidelines, you will be required to make “surplus income” payments and your bankruptcy period will be extended to 21 months.
- Information about your bankruptcy will generally be kept on record by Credit Bureaus for 6 years (this is extended to 14 years for those declaring bankruptcy for the second time), which means acquiring credit afterwards may take some time.
- The amount you are required to pay and all related fees are based on government regulations, taking into consideration your net monthly income and the number of people in your household.
We recognize that debt struggles can be overwhelming and add stress to your daily routine. We also recognize that declaring bankruptcy might not be the most suitable solution for your unique situation, which is why we offer a number of alternatives, such as a consumer proposal, orderly payment of debt, debt consolidation, informal debt settlement and credit counselling.
