Hello, I from education can not give you a direct answer, but from experience a discharge can take up to 3 months after the inital court date. All paperwork will be filed, and any funds from the trustee will be distributed within this timeframe. Im not a legal advisor, so this information may vary from state to state. The information listed above was done in the state of Ohio.
