Wadsworth Bankruptcy Attorney

What is a Wadsworth bankruptcy attorney? A Wadsworth bankruptcy lawyer does not file the bankruptcy petition in Wadsworth, nor does the attorney file the petition in Medina.  Instead, the Wadsworth bankruptcy lawyer looks to the bankruptcy court, which is part of the federal court system.  A Wadsworth resident’s bankruptcy petition is filed in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, Akron Division, which handles cases from Medina County, Summit County and Portage County.  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.  This location is more commonly known as the Orangerie Mall.  The hearings for Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions are held at the Chapter 13 Trustee’s office, which is located at the PNC Center, One Cascade Plaza, 20th Floor, Akron, Ohio 44308.  An informational video plays in a continuous loop in the Chapter 13 Trustee’s office on hearing days.  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.  The bankruptcy petitioner must bring photographic identification and a social security card to the hearing.  The attorney advises the client and ensures that the necessary filings are made so that the client can receive a discharge of their debts.

Wadsworth Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney


In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, one repays a percentage of his or her debts over three to five years in exchange for keeping their non-exempt assets and may receive a broader discharge of debt than is available under Chapter 7. Usually, the person filing Chapter 13 either has a higher income or a greater amount of assets not covered by the exemptions.

Wadsworth Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney 


In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, one receives a quick discharge of their personal debts in exchange for the liquidation of all assets not covered by the exemptions. Usually, the person filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy has few or no non-exempt assets.
