A Burbank bankruptcy attorney prepares the client’s bankruptcy petition for filing in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, Canton Division. This bankruptcy court handles cases for individuals in numerous counties, including Wayne County, Stark County, Holmes County, and Ashland County. The hearings for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases are held at the trustee hearing room in the Ralph Regula Federal Building and United States Courthouse, 401 McKinley Avenue S.W., Canton, Ohio 44702. The hearings for Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions are held in the same location as the Chapter 7 hearings. Canton Chapter 13 hearings begin with a mandatory informational class with the bankruptcy filers only, followed by the actual hearing with the Chapter 13 trustee and the debtor’s attorney present.
What documents are needed at the hearing? The petitioner must have a valid photo ID and social security card. Other documents must either be brought to the hearing or sent to the trustee prior to the hearing. These hearings will not go forward without these documents.
Burbank Bankruptcy Attorney Handles Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13
Chapter 7 is a quicker process overall, resulting in a discharge of personal debts in exchange for the liquidation of all non-exempt assets. In many instances, all the assets are exempt, which means the petitioner would not lose anything to the trustee. If the petitioner has a lot of non-exempt assets, Chapter 13 may be a better option.
Chapter 13 takes at least three to five years to complete, involving repayment of a portion of the debts in exchange for keeping non-exempt assets and receiving a broader discharge of debt than is available under Chapter 7. In many instances, a higher income or large amount of non-exempt assets leads to filing under this chapter.
