  • What is Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

    Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is an option for people who are able to set up a payment plan for at least a portion of their bills. These people are usually wage earners, or they have some kind of monthly income from which they can make the plan payments.
  • What exactly is a 341 Hearing?

    A 341 hearing is a hearing required by the Bankruptcy Code under Section 341. It is often referred to as the Meeting of Creditors. Once a bankruptcy case is filed, your hearing is usually scheduled with 30-45 days. This is the chance for your appointed Trustee to ask you questions about your case.
  • Can I file bankruptcy if I am retired?

    If you are thinking about filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, individuals who have retired file quite often. Many times, people think that they have enough money in savings to survive after retirement, but after a period of time, they find out that they have fallen short on their plans.
  • Will bankruptcy stop the seizure of my personal property?

    If you are facing a seizure of personal property by a bailiff or court officer, you will be able to stop the seizure by filing a bankruptcy case. As soon as a bankruptcy case is filed, the Bankruptcy Court issues an order which prohibits a judgment creditor from following through on a seizure.
  • Do I have to have a job to qualify for Chapter 13?

    The Chapter 13 is often referred to as a Wage Earners Plan, but wages can often be in the form of other income. In order to qualify, all sources of income must be considered.
  • Will everyone know that I filed bankruptcy?

    There are generally three ways to find out about a bankruptcy filing. First, if you are a creditor listed in a case, you will receive ntice of the filing. Next, you can find out about a filing if the Debtor tells you that he has filed. Finally, the Bankruptcy Court has a website that can be used to verify a filing.
  • Can a personal loan be discharged in bankruptcy?

    A personal loan, so long as it is not secured by property, is an unsecured liability that can be discharged in bankruptcy.

"I had a business and I just couldn’t do it any more. We had to shut the business down and I had a bunch of personal guarantees. After filing, I wiped out all of the debt and was finally able to start living again. I was shocked that it wasn’t hard at all to file. Terri really knows what she is doing and the rest of the staff is so nice and helpful."

"I can’t believe the difference between what I thought bankruptcy was about and what it really is. I filed a bankruptcy and wiped out the mortgage that I owed on a home in West Virginia. Before filing, I worried every day that the sheriff was going to show up on my door and try to take my things. Now, I hardly ever think about what a bad year I had."

"I had a foreclosure and thought that I was going to lose my house. I filed a Chapter 13 and you guys saved my house and got me a much better deal than the modification process that I had been working on for over a year."

"I tell everybody about you guys. When we went to court, the Trustee took a long time on other attorney’s cases, but ours just flew by. I couldn’t believe the difference."

"When I came into the office, my car had been repossessed. My friend told me about Weik Law Office and I came right in. The car had not been sold and I was able to get it back when I filed for Chapter 13. I almost thought it was too good to be true. Now, I’m paying a lot less on my car and all of my credit cards and hospital bills are gone."

"Before I came into the office, I had liquidated over $21,000 from my 401K to pay on my credit cards. I was so disappointed when I found out that I could have filed for bankruptcy, wiped out the credit cards, and kept everything in my 401K. Sure wish I would have known about this over a year ago."

When I first came into the office, I really didn’t understand anything about bankruptcy. I thought that I was going to lose everything that I had. After I filed, I was able to keep my house, my car and all of my property. I didn’t lose anything and I wiped out over $62,000 in credit card bills. I sure wish that I would have done this a lot earlier.

"I kept hearing the ads on the radio, and I was just too embarrassed to come in to the office. Finally, one of my co-workers told me about your office and I made an appointment. After coming in to meet with you, I was shocked that you were an attorney. Attorneys have such a bad reputation, but you were so understanding and never once made me feel bad about my situation. Now, I tell anybody ...

"I lost my job about a year ago and fell behind on my child support. Everybody thinks that someone who does not pay for child support is a dead beat Dad. That’s just not true. I found a new job, but I couldn’t make up the payments. After filing for Chapter 13, I started making my current child support and paid a little extra each month to get caught up. I never even realized that ...

"When I came into your office, I felt like my financial situation was hopeless. I hadn’t been sleeping at night and I dreaded getting up because of all the nasty creditor calls. As soon as I left your office, it was like a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. All I can say is that I wish I had come in months ago."

"Before coming into Weik Law Office, I met with two other attorneys. Boy, was this office different. They reviewed my entire financial situation and put things in terms that I could understand and relate to. At the first attorney’s office, they made me feel terrible about being there and wouldn’t let me ask questions. They even told me that I had to give up my house. It’s now been months since I filed and I ...

"Thank you so much for making the day of my hearing so easy. I was extremely nervous, I hardly remembered my name, but when I sat before the Trustee, and because of your fine work and preparation, it was indeed better than I expected."

Michael
"I found out that bankruptcy is a way to wipe the slate clean and start over. I think that everyone at some point makes financial mistakes, and in some cases could even be out of their control. Bankruptcy provides a way to forgive your mistakes and try again with more financial knowledge than before."

"Within months after filing, I purchased a used car at an even lower rate than my previous vehicle prior to filing the bankruptcy. I am now driving a car that would not have been possible to get if I had not filed."

Don and Heather
"Terri was extremely helpful during the first consultation. We got right down to business looking at my finances and where I stood at the end of the month. We also talked about the fees and I knew right from the start what this was going to cost. In all honesty, I have nothing negative to say about the whole process and the office."

"Our first consultation was very helpful. We were so confused, but Terri has a very calming way and made us feel completely comfortable. We had gone to another office in town and it was night and day. The staff at Weik Law Office was always easy to reach, very courteous and knowledgeable. They were organized and prompt."

"Why doesn’t anyone tell you that you can wipe out back taxes that are over three years old? Does the government not want people to know? I was able to wipe out $240,000 that was pulling me down since 2003. If I’d have known about this, maybe I wouldn’t have ended up in the hospital with chest pains."

Bob and Carrie
"Bank of America told me that I could lower my monthly mortgage payments by $300 per month for eight months and then they would permanently lower my payments. I made all of the payments and after eight months, they sent me a letter telling me that I had to pay $2,400 or they would foreclose on my home. When I called them, they told me that they did not have to accept the modification and that’s when I ...
