    That Is a difficult question. It depends on what your meaning of the question. Generally, it takes 3-4 weeks to get all the necessary documents together and file a Chapter 13. After you file, it is generally 30 days to the creditors hearing. Once you file Chapter 13, you generally develop a plan where you make payments for 3 - 5 years depending on your situation. That entire time you are under the protection of the bankruptcy code. After successful payment of your plan, you then receive your discharge.
