Norwood Credit Card Debt Attorneys Offering Skilled Counsel

Many of our firm's Chapter 7 clients have credit card debt that has spiraled out of control. Medical bills are also a common reason for filing bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a proven method of getting relief from these and other types of debts while giving you a fresh start financially. From the beginning of your case until the end, our lawyers will be ready to answer your questions and give you the information you need during an uncertain time.

How Does Chapter 7 Work?

The first question we must answer is whether you qualify for Chapter 7. Under the bankruptcy laws, your income must be below the median household income level in your state. This is known as the means test. Our Cincinnati Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers will look closely at your finances and help you determine if you pass the means test. If you do, you can file for Chapter 7 relief.

Once we file your bankruptcy petition with the court, an automatic stay will begin. Under the automatic stay, your creditors are required under law to stop contacting you or making any effort to collect their debts. This can provide immediate peace of mind and reduce your stress levels.

In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your nonexempt assets will be liquidated, or sold, to repay your creditors. You will keep any exempt assets. Before you file Chapter 7, we will look closely at your assets to determine if any of these assets would not be exempt in bankruptcy.

Around 30 days after we file your bankruptcy petition, the court will schedule a meeting of creditors, where you will be required to answer questions about your finances. Some time after the meeting of creditors, your bankruptcy will be completed.
