Discharge papers

September 24th, 2009 by Questions

Please, in your experience, in Toronto, how long does it generally take the Registrar to sign discharge papers, once the discharge date set by the court hearing, has passed? And how long before the trustee receives them?

It may not be the registrar holding things up – once you’ve met all the requirements set by the Court in order to receive a discharge, your trustee has to send draft orders to the Court to be signed. There may be a delay at the Court (depending on the volume of work), but it’s not too bad these days.

If you need a signed order quickly you can always ask to take the drafts down to the Courhouse yourself to expedite matters. Or in most cases, if you ask your trustee to write a letter (and attach the disposition sheet from the Court) stating that you’ve met all the terms set by the Court, this will suffice while you wait for the actual signed order.
