West Salem Bankruptcy Attorney

A West Salem bankruptcy attorney represents individuals in the Canton Bankruptcy Court, otherwise known as the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, Canton Division.  This bankruptcy court is a federal court that covers quite a few Ohio counties:  Wayne County, Stark County, Holmes County, Tuscarawas County, Ashland County, Carroll County, Richland County and Crawford County.

Where are the hearings held when represented by a West Salem Bankruptcy Attorney?


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.  The hearings for Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions are held in the same location as the Chapter 7 hearings.

Do I need to bring anything to the hearing?


Your Canton bankruptcy attorney will usually ensure that the necessary documentation is provided to the appropriate bankruptcy trustee.  However, the debtors will need to bring any follow-up documents to the hearing, as well as their driver’s license and social security card.

West Salem Bankruptcy Attorney explains 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.
