Canal Fulton Bankruptcy Attorney

A Canal Fulton bankruptcy attorney represents individuals in need of a fresh start in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, Canton Division.  This bankruptcy court is a federal court that serves a large number of Ohio counties, consisting of:  Wayne County, Stark County, Holmes County, Tuscarawas County, Ashland County, Carroll County, Richland County and Crawford County.  The hearings for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases are held at the trustee hearing room, which is located on the first door to your left 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.  This class does not take the place of the mandatory financial management class.  These hearings will not go forward without the proper documentation.

Canal Fulton Bankruptcy Attorney Explains The Difference Between A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy And A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy


In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, one receives a quick discharge of their personal debts in exchange for the liquidation of all non-exempt assets.  Usually, the person filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy has few or no non-exempt assets.  As long as there are no assets, Chapter 7 is a relatively quick process.

In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, one commits to repayment of a portion of his or her debts over three to five years in exchange for keeping their non-exempt assets and receiving a broader discharge of debt than is available under Chapter 7.  Usually, the person filing Chapter 7 either has a higher income or a greater amount of non-exempt assets.  Although Chapter 13 may take longer, the Chapter 13 trustee does not take assets, such as houses and vehicles, but only requires monthly payments.
