Fugate Law Firm



Bankruptcy law is a federal law and therefore is filed in the Federal Court System. Northern District of Indiana has three federal courts. One located in Hammond, one in South Bend and one in Fort Wayne. Anyone who lives in Laporte or Starke County will have their bankruptcy filed in South Bend. Whether you filed a Chapter 7 or 13 your hearing will take place at One Michiana Square in South Bend. In most cases you will only have one hearing. It is called a 341 meeting of creditors, however, very rarely do creditors appear. Most often the hearing is attended only by you, someone from our office and the trustee. The trustee will review your petition to make sure that it meets all of the requirements of law. Most hearings take less than 10 minutes.
