Will I Have To Go To Bankruptcy Court?

Effectively Representing You Before The Bankruptcy Trustee

Bankruptcy is a legal proceeding governed by the rules and procedures of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. It is much different from other civil proceedings in federal court, however.

At the law firm of Minnillo Law Group Co., LPA, we provide effective representation for individuals and businesses in bankruptcy proceedings. Our attorneys have handled thousands of bankruptcy cases, and they have a thorough understanding of bankruptcy procedures. Minnillo Law Group Co., LPA, will work diligently before, during and after the bankruptcy hearing to protect your rights and assets.

Contact us today to learn more about the bankruptcy process, and how we can help you get debt relief.

The Bankruptcy Hearing

If you choose to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, our firm will handle all aspects of your case, including dealings with your creditors. Your primary responsibilities will be to:

  • Provide us with accurate information about your income, debts and assets
  • Attend a debt counseling session (in person, by phone or over the Internet)
  • Appear before the bankruptcy trustee in a brief hearing

Before you enter the hearing room, your lawyer will explain the purpose of the hearing. Here’s what you can expect:

The bankruptcy hearing will be held in a conference room, not a courtroom. A bankruptcy trustee will preside, not a judge. The hearing itself will not be confrontational or adversarial in nature. Rather, it will be conducted in a businesslike manner.

An attorney at our firm will be present to represent your interests. Your only responsibility in the hearing will be to truthfully answer a few questions under oath. While creditors are entitled to attend the hearing and make objections, they rarely if ever do so in consumer bankruptcies.

Our goal in filing your bankruptcy will be to obtain the approval of your bankruptcy petition, to reduce your debts to the greatest extent, and to protect your property.
