Awaiting bankruptcy discharge

January 22nd, 2007 by Questions

I am a first time bankrupt and made my last payment in Aug 2006. I am awaiting a court appointment as the creditor (a lawyers office) of my long time outstanding student loan has opposed my discharge. We are now mid january and I still have not received notice of my court date and am anxious to move on with my life. Is this a normal length of time for court appointment? and what will I be expected to supply, anwser and or prove in the actual court proceeding?…Any information will be appreciated.

Unfortunately, there is no constitutional right to a speedy bankruptcy. It takes as long as it takes. If I had to guess, I’d say you’re waiting for a Toronto Court date – it can take a while. To make matters worse, the Toronto Court is in the process of moving and so it is not accepting or booking any new matters until after thier move.

If you are becoming frustrated then I suggest you go and see your trustee – they won’t be able to help, but at least you can vent to someone about it.
