No Court Hearing | Confirmation Paperwork is Processed and Delivered
For a second bankruptcy, if surplus income payments are not required, the automatic discharge can take place after 24 months.
With surplus income payments, automatic discharge can take place after 36 months if all other conditions have been met.
Those who get an automatic discharge don’t have to go to a Court hearing. Your trustee will send you a copy of the paperwork, which will include the discharge certificate that confirms your successful discharge.
