April 2020 Bankruptcy Allowance Update

The United States Bankruptcy Courts update the allowance amounts for filing bankruptcy approximately every 6 months. Beginning April 1, 2020, the amounts below will be in effect. Those allowances will again be subject to change again in approximately 6 months, so it is important to check back for further updates.

If you are struggling with debt, facing a foreclosure, garnishment, collection, or repossession action, bankruptcy or debt settlement may be an option for you. Please call our office at 419-352-2535 for a free consultation today!
