how long do you have to file bankruptcy, after you have closed your businessd
There is no statute of limitations on filing for bankruptcy. You can file whenever you want. However, if there are creditor claims or judgments which may be converted into a lien against your personal property, then you would want to file bankruptcy within 90 days of the date when any lien may be recorded. Otherwise, the lien may survive the bankruptcy discharge. So as a practical matter, 90 days is the best answer.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
