Norton Bankruptcy Attorney

What is a Norton bankruptcy attorney?  A Norton bankruptcy lawyer for Summit County prepares the client’s petition for filing in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court,, Akron Division.  This bankruptcy court’s jurisdiction consists of Medina County, Summit County and Portage County.

Where are the hearings held?  Unlike some other bankruptcy courts, the initial hearings are not held at the courthouse.  While certain hearings are held before the bankruptcy judge at the courthouse, the initial hearings are held before the bankruptcy trustee assigned to the case at separate locations. 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.  The hearings for Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions are held at the Chapter 13 Trustee’s office, One Cascade Plaza, 20th Floor, Akron, Ohio 44308.  These hearings will not go forward without submission of certain documents and showing photo ID and a social security card.

Norton Bankruptcy Attorney Represents Clients For 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 from collection, which means the petitioner would not lose anything to the trustee.  If the petitioner has a lot of non-exempt assets, the Chapter 7 trustee would likely take those items and sell them to distribute to the creditors.  In this situation, Chapter 13 may be a better option.

Chapter 13 involves a repayment plan between 3 to 5 years.  The Chapter 13 Trustee does not take any assets away, but can oppose the proposed plan if it does not pay enough money into the bankruptcy estate.  In many instances, a higher income or large amount of non-exempt assets leads to filing under this chapter.
