A Hinckley bankruptcy attorney prepares the client’s bankruptcy petition for filing in the Akron Division of the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court. This bankruptcy court handles cases from Medina County, Summit County and Portage County. One judge presides over the court and a number of trustees handle the individual hearings, otherwise known as the first meeting of creditors. These hearings are also called 341 hearings, as they are defined in section 341 of the bankruptcy code (11 U.S.C. 341).
The location of the hearing depends on which chapter the individual filed. The hearings for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases are held at the trustee hearing room at 76 S. Main Street, Atrium Level #120, Akron, Ohio 44308. Chapter 13 bankruptcy hearings are held at the Chapter 13 Trustee’s office, which is located at the PNC Center, One Cascade Plaza, 20th Floor, Akron, Ohio 44308. Regardless of the chapter, these hearings will not go forward unless your bankruptcy lawyer has ensured that the trustee has received all the required information and documentation in a timely fashion, and the bankruptcy petitioner shows a photo ID and social security card at the hearing.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as liquidation, but, for the majority of debtors, nothing gets liquidated. Chapter 13 bankruptcy consists of a three to five year payment plan. In either chapter, upon successful completion of the bankruptcy, the debtor receives a discharge of their debts, with the exception of some debts such as certain taxes, student loans and reaffirmed debts.
