Ohio Bankruptcy Lawyers

The State of Ohio has two main bankruptcy courts so if you are filing bankruptcy in Ohio, you will most likely be filing in the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy or the Southern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court.  Determining which bankruptcy court you should file in is best left to a bankruptcy attorney. Usually, this will be determined by the wherever the debtor resides in Ohio (which county). There are, however, other rules that might dictate the appropriate venue.

    Property Exemptions Under Ohio Law

    If a debtor is eligible and files for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code in the State of Ohio, there are some cases where the debtor will legally be permitted to keep some of their property. This is referred to as “property exemption” from bankruptcy under Ohio law. Ohio Revised Code 2329.66 governs these property exemptions. This statute provides that debtors domiciled in Ohio may hold property exempt from execution, garnishment, attachment, or sale to satisfy a judgment or order, as provided in the statute.
