The Process of Filing Bankruptcy in Pennsylvania
The bankruptcy lawyers at Foster Law Offices, LLC are licensed to practice in the State of Pennsylvania and have successfully represented thousands of individuals in the Western District of Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Court. If you are a resident of Erie County, Pennsylvania, this the district in which your bankruptcy case will be filed.
After meeting with our attorneys (click here to schedule a free consultation), our staff will create a “draft” of the bankruptcy petition, working with you to gather the documents necessary to complete your case. This includes: 2 years of tax returns, pay advices, and retirement/social security statements, to name a few. Upon completion of your case, your 341 meeting of creditors will be scheduled. This is typically the only hearing individual debtors will attend and in most cases lasts less than 20 minutes, plus the attorney is there to advocate on your behalf.
In most cases, individuals filing for personal bankruptcy in Erie County, Pennsylvania will attend their 341 meeting of creditors hearing at the US Federal Courthouse in Downtown Erie on Park Avenue. The Federal Courthouse is located in the square in downtown by Gannons’ Hammermill Center (be sure to bring quarters with you as the closest parking requires that you feed the meter). Following the hearing, the length of time to the “finish line” and process can vary based upon the Chapter filed (see difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy) and the specifics of the case. In the end, however, the goal is to obtain a “discharge” of specific debt, providing the debt relief and fresh start you were seeking when you first met with our office.
