Pennsylvania Bankruptcy - Potter County, McKean County, Tioga County 

Bankruptcy Basics in McKean County, Pennsylvania

Our bankruptcy attorney helps Pennsylvania residents file for bankruptcy* and get debt relief help. There is no fee for an initial consultation. 

If you’re considering filing bankruptcy in Bradford, Eldred, Smethport, Kane, Port Allegany or anywhere else in McKean County, Pennsylvania, our bankruptcy attorney handles bankruptcy petitions for McKean County and the Western District. The process begins with a petition in the Federal Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, there will be a 341 meeting of creditors approximately six weeks after the filing of the bankruptcy petition. This meeting occurs in Warren, PA. At the creditors meeting, he will ask questions regarding the petition and assets designed to determine if the information in the bankruptcy petition is true and correct. In the majority of cases, he will find that there are no assets available to disperse to creditors and an order will be issued to discharge unsecured debt while allowing you to keep your belongings.

The bankruptcy process is complicated and not something that most people can do on their own.  Contact our office to learn more about bankruptcy and how we can help you build a better future.
