Wooster Bankruptcy Attorney

What is a Wooster bankruptcy attorney?  A Wooster bankruptcy lawyer prepares the client’s petition for filing in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, Canton Division.  This includes calculating the client’s eligibility for Chapter 7 or 13 under the means test.  The more diligent Wayne County bankruptcy attorney ensures that his clients take only approved credit counseling and debtor education classes.  This bankruptcy court’s jurisdiction consists of Wayne County, Stark County, Holmes County, Tuscarawas County, Ashland County, Carroll County, Richland County and Crawford County.  A link to the Canton Bankruptcy Court can be found here.  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.  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.

Wooster Bankruptcy Attorney Handles Chapter 7


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.

Wooster Bankruptcy Attorney Handles Chapter 13


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.  For more information about Chapter 13, please look at the Chapter 13 Trustee’s website.
