The bankruptcy court in Detroit, Michigan is located at 211 West Fort St., Detroit, MI 48226, on the corner of Fort & Washington, 1 block northward up Washington from Cobo Arena. Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 341 Meetings and other Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy-related hearings. This court location houses all proceedings for debtors residing in Lenawee, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Sanilac, and Wayne counties. Debtors residing in Jackson, Washtenaw, and Monroe counties may have proceedings—especially 341 Meetings—scheduled in downtown Ann Arbor instead.

Inside the Building at the Bankruptcy Court in Detroit:

In Detroit, 341 Meetings are held on the 3rd floor of the 211 W. Fort St.  building. Passing through security is not required to access this area of the building. The main elevator bank of the building is accessed just before the security gateway through the building’s lobby. Once exiting the elevators on the third floor, simply look to your right or left to see the doubled-door entry to the always extremely crowded waiting area for 341 Meetings. Through that waiting area are the individual hearing rooms for each trustee. Your 341 hearing will be held in one or another of these rooms, depending on who your trustee is.

Bankruptcy courtrooms are located on upper floors of the same building but require passage through a security checkpoint, and cell phones are not permitted into the courtrooms.

Parking at the Bankruptcy Court in Detroit:

The easiest place to park is the parking structure directly across Washington from the Bankruptcy Court. However, this ramp can run you as much as $15 per visit, last time I spent any appreciable time parked inside of it. If you are able to walk a few blocks, a better bet is the surface lots 2-3 blocks to the east up Fort St. These lots charge $6-$10 per visit, flat rate. Of course, everyone in Detroit knows of a free parking-spot somewhere in the downtown area, so you may have better luck elsewhere.

Driving Directions to the Bankruptcy Court in Detroit:

Depending on your point of origin, the best way to reach the Bankruptcy Court in Detroit is take the Lodge (M-10) south and take Exit 1B onto Congress. After that, it’s a quick left turn onto Washington and 1 block up to Fort. Otherwise, turning right onto Fort from Woodward Ave. will have you arriving in front of the Bankruptcy Court within a few, quick blocks.
