A third time bankruptcy has a great deal of uncertainty with it as it is really up to the court. As the court will ultimately make the final decision I can say this, if you have surplus income you can expect that the bankruptcy will be a minimum of 36 months. But it is possible that the court could choose to extend it, or even refuse to give a discharge entirely. I would suggest you consult with a local trustee to review what you can expect from your local courts, and where ever possible I would strongly suggest you consider the filing of aconsumer proposal as it will reduce a great deal of the potential uncertainty involved.
