Steiden Law Offices | Ohio
The state of Ohio has a long history in our country. Located in the Midwest and named after the Iroquois term "great river", Ohio has been an integral part of our nation's growth since it was founded in 1803. Known as the Buckeye State, Ohio is passionate about sports, nature, and community. The state has nurtured eight astronauts and eight presidents, making it much more important than the size and population would suggest.
With all of this history, it is obvious that Ohioans beam with pride about their state, becoming even more dedicated to this Midwestern bellwether. This has led many individuals and families to invest in their hometown by opening up businesses and taking individual financial risks that would further benefit themselves, as well as Ohio.
Unfortunately, there is always the possibility of a business or financial decision not working the way one expected, leading to a failing business or high consumer debts. Fortunately, for Ohio residents, they have options when dealing with monetary issues in the form of bankruptcy protection.

Each type of bankruptcy has its own set of rules and requirements, so understanding the basics components of the two will allow you to choose the right one for your personal situation.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Ohio
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is commonly referred to as the "liquidation" form of bankruptcy. This filing will require a person's or company's (partnership, corporation or other business entity) assets to be liquidated, with a trustee overseeing this process. The trustee will used to sell the liquidated assets in order to pay off debt your have incurred. This will allow you to satisfy your debt requirements so that you can start over and have a second chance at success.
Filing for Chapter 13 in Ohio
In a Cincinnati Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, you are reorganizing debt as opposed to liquidating it. Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code allows people with regular income to keep their property and pay off some or all of their debts over a three to five year period. This chapter of the Bankruptcy Code is an alternative for those individuals whose income is too high to qualify for filing under Chapter 7, or who need to protect non-exempt assets.
