What do I need to bring to file for bankruptcy?

At the time of your initial interview, we encourage our clients to bring the following items:

  1. Photo ID and Social Security Card
    • We are required to make a copy of a picture ID and your social security card. You must have these with you at the time of your initial interview.
  2. Proof of Income
    • Proof of your total household income, for every source of income generated into your household, for the past six months.
  3. Tax Returns
    • If you are required to pay taxes and file tax returns, you must provide us with the returns for the last four years: 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
  4. Property Tax Appraisal
    • If you own or are buying any property we need a property tax appraisal of that property showing what it is worth. A copy of your property tax appraisal can be obtained at your county courthouse.
  5. Billing Statements
    • You should have at least one written correspondence from each creditor/debt that you owe. These correspondences should be dated within the ninety (90) days preceding the date of your appointment.
  6. List of Creditors and Debts
    • We also ask that you make a complete hand-written list of each and every creditor you owe. You cannot leave off any debt that is owed. You must include on this list the following information for each debt:
      1. The creditor’s correct name and address
      2. The amount of the debt.
      3. The date the debt was incurred.
      4. The account number for each debt.
      5. If a credit card debt, the last date the credit card was used.
      6. The names and addresses of any co-signers on any debt.

What if I can’t schedule a consultation during regular business hours?

We understand people have responsibilities or live far away and are unable to make it for a consultation during our regular business hours. Therefore, we offer consultations after hours and on weekends on a limited bases and upon request. In addition, we also offer consultation via Skype and FaceTime.

For more information about scheduling a consultation after hours or by Skype or FaceTime, please contact our office.

Please note, although it is not necessary for you to have all of this information before your initial consultation with the attorney, we will need this information before you file for bankruptcy.
