Attorney Weiland provides a free initial consultation to those who might be considering bankruptcy. Typically the process is as follows. At the initial meeting clients' questions are answered, clients are provided a questionaire to assist in determining their bankruptcy options, clients are given information regarding the bankruptcy process, clients are provide information regarding the required credit counseling, and clients are shown the various bankruptcy options.
If a client decides to pursue a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, a second meeting is set up for the bankruptcy client to return the Certificate of Completion of the credit counseling the questionaire with the information necessary for Attorney Weiland to develop the bankruptcy petition and schedules. Attorney Weiland will personally develop the necessary paperwork for filing a client's bankruptcy petition and meet again with the client to review and explain the petition and schedules and for the client to sign the petition and schedules.
After the petition and schedules are signed, Attorney Weiland files the documents with the Bankruptcy Court. In the Western District of Wisconsin the filing of the petition, schedules and filing fee is done electronically over the internet. This allows Attorney Weiland to immediately provide the client with information regarding the case number, appointed trustee and the date and time of the creditors meeting.
After the petition and schedules are filed, a creditors meting is held within 30-45 days. This meeting is an opportunity for creditors to ask questions regarding the clients assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Typically very few, if any, creditors show up to ask questions. Typically only the bankruptcy trustee is at the meeting and as a representative of the interests of the creditors he/she asks a series of questions. Attorney Weiland will personally accompany clients to the creditors meeting. It is common that the only proceeding that a client must attend is the Creditors Meeting. Creditors have 60 days from the date of the creditors meeting to object. While there is NO guarantee that a creditor will not object, the vast majority of cases handled by Attorney Weiland do not result in objections from creditors.
Assuming that there are no objections a client should receive a Notice of Discharge within 2 weeks of the final date for creditor objections. Assuming everything goes normally, the process is typically 4 months in duration.
During the whole process, clients are assured that Attorney Weiland will be personally involved in every aspect of their bankruptcy.

"Working with Attorney William Weiland was a very pleasurable experience during our personal situation and decisions we had to make. Both him and his wife were very personable and made us feel extremely at ease with our situation. He was always willing to help whether it was after hours or on the weekend. I would HIGHLY reccomend them to anyone who is looking for an attorney that will work for YOU. I have heard many horror stories from friends and family when dealing with situations similar to ours and am happy to say we were blessed with such wonderful representation."
