The Bankruptcy Filing Process in Cincinnati
Individuals who do not handle bankruptcy law matters every day are going to be unfamiliar with the process for filing bankruptcy.

The Bankruptcy Filing Process in Cincinnati and Throughout Ohio
The bankruptcy process is very procedural. The attorneys at our firm will walk you through every step of the process. We will first help determine what type of bankruptcy is best for you — Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Once that is determined, we will gather information about your financial situation and begin the process of filing for bankruptcy.
Important parts of the filing process include:
- Disclosing all debts and assets
- Attending credit counseling (two classes)
- Appearing at a meeting of creditors (likely one time)
While it is not required that you work with a lawyer for your bankruptcy, it is strongly encouraged that you retain competent legal counsel. The process for filing is specific and just one error could prevent you from being able to file at all. A lawyer will understand the specific deadlines and know how to prepare the petition in a way so that it will likely be approved by the bankruptcy court. You can count on the team at Minnillo & Jenkins, CO. LPA to help you through this process.
