Talk of a joint venture to prevent sale of Downtown properties

While there are a few situations in which bankruptcy might be abrupt and out of one's control, the financial downfall that ultimately leads to one having to file for bankruptcy can oftentimes be halted with the adjustment of a few key factors. When an entity does succumb to bankruptcy in Ohio, the outcome can create lingering consequences that will take time and resources to fully recover from. 

Reviewing household item exemptions

Many in Cuyahoga Falls may hold misconceptions about personal bankruptcy, the chief among these being that it is somehow perceived to be a way for one to take "the easy way out" from their financial struggles. The fact that (according to information compiled by the U.S. Judiciary Branch) there were 12.8 million consumer bankruptcy petitions filed in the U.S. between 2005 and 2017 might seem to reinforce this assumption. Yet in reality, there is nothing easy about the decision to seek bankruptcy protection. Those faced with it also have to worry about that impact that it may have on their property and assets. 

What are the Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 eligibility requirements?

If you feel overwhelmed with crushing debt, filing for bankruptcy may be a way that you can reboot your finances and start over. There are usually two types of bankruptcy that individuals in Ohio may file: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Chapter 13 is reorganization bankruptcy in which you and the court work together to formulate a plan for you to repay the debt that you owe over the course of several years. Chapter 7, on the other hand, is a liquidation bankruptcy in which you pay off your debts by selling off some of your assets.

What debts are excluded from Chapter 13 discharge?

If you qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it offers you many potential benefits. Because a Chapter 13 bankruptcy reorganizes your debt rather than liquidating assets in order to pay it off, in most cases you will be able to retain your property in Ohio, such as your house or your car, when you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. At the end of your repayment period, if you have kept up your payments on time, most of your debts will no longer remain.
