How Long Does it Take to File Bankruptcy in Ohio?

A bankruptcy takes around 3-5 years to be finalized here in Ohio. Before filing for bankruptcy, you’ll need to complete an online credit counseling course. As soon as this is done, your lawyer can begin filing for your petition for bankruptcy.

30 days after your bankruptcy is filed, you will attend a Section 341 Meeting of Creditors with your lawyer to answer questions under oath. 30 days after this meeting, you will have a Confirmation Hearing to solidify your case and set you on the path to repayment.

Is There an Income Limit to Filing Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Ohio?

Yes, individuals filing for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Ohio must pass a means test to ensure that they fall under the income limit. This test measures your income against the median income level in Ohio to ensure you are under the mark. Your income level is also judged upon the size of your household. The following are income level limits in the state of Ohio for:

  • A single-person household: $43,057
