    settlement of debts

    I'm looking for some alternatives for my following sentence.
    The settlement of his debts took him several years.

    So, can I also say these in English alternatively?
    For the settlement of his debts he needed several years.
    He needed several years for the settlement of his debts.
    To settle his debts he needed several years.
    It took him several years to settle his debts.
