Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Representation By Wayne County Bankruptcy Attorney
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. The hearings for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases are held at the trustee hearing room in the Ralph Regula Federal Building and United States Courthouse, 401 McKinley Avenue S.W., Canton, Ohio 44702.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Representation By Wayne County Bankruptcy Attorney
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. 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 required of all bankruptcy petitioners.
