Right on the heels of writing this post about why some hearings are held inside an airport conference room... we received news today that the hearing location would be moved effective January 2017.
Hearings next year will be held at:
Winnebago County Courthouse
415 Jackson St.
Oshkosh, WI 54901
The CHANGE only affects people who are filing Chapter 13 and who reside in Winnebago, Outagamie, Fond Du Lac, Waupaca, Waushara, Green Lake, and Marquette Counties. However, this means that all debtors filing for bankruptcy who reside in the aforementioned counties - both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 - will have their hearings at the Winnebago County Courthouse (just different room numbers).
The Oshkosh Chapter 13 calendar is typically the last Friday of the month. Therefore, I will not update the map on this page until the end of 2016, since people with hearings in these final months of 2016 may still need directions to Wittman Regional Airport, and folks on the January 27th calendar will have plenty of time to check back for updated information on that page.
Hearings are typically scheduled about 4-6 weeks out. If you reside in one of the counties listed above and are about to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, expect that your hearing will be at the Winnebago County Courthouse and NOT Wittman airport if you file your bankruptcy case toward the end of December 2016 or later.
