Medina County Bankruptcy Attorney

A Medina County resident seeking bankruptcy relief needs a Medina County bankruptcy attorney.  A Medina County resident seeking a fresh start through bankruptcy would have their bankruptcy petition filed in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, Akron Division.  Because the bankruptcy court is part of the federal court system, its jurisdiction is not limited to one county, as it covers Medina County, Summit County and Portage County.

Where are the bankruptcy hearings?

Chapter 7: trustee hearing room at 76 S. Main Street, Atrium Level #120, Akron, Ohio 44308.  Chapter 13:  Chapter 13 Trustee’s office, PNC Center, One Cascade Plaza, 20th Floor, Akron, Ohio 44308.

What does a bankruptcy petitioner need for the hearings to go forward?

The documents required vary according to the chapter, the trustee, and the individual situation (business bankruptcies may need a lot of documents).  The bankruptcy petitioner must bring photographic identification and a social security card to the hearing.

What is the difference between a Chapter 7 and 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.

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.
