What Do I Need to File for Bankruptcy?
To file for bankruptcy, you need an attorney. The bankruptcy process is based on a complex set of federal laws. A lawyer can help you navigate the bankruptcy system and simplify the process for you.
At Rothschild & Ausbrooks, PLLC, we have more than three decades of experience handling bankruptcy cases. We can clearly explain your options, and we can guide you through every step of the process.
A Complete Picture of Your Financial Situation Is Necessary to Succeed
When you meet with your attorney, it is vital that you have a full list of all creditors, co-signors and debts. This includes the debts you owe credit card companies, banks, hospitals, utility companies and other lenders. You should also bring:
- Pay stubs from the past six months
- Tax returns
- A government-issued ID and Social Security number
For a full list of the items we ask our clients to bring to their initial consultation, read our due diligent checklist.
If we do not provide a complete picture of your financial situation to the bankruptcy court, then some debts may linger during and after bankruptcy. This can open you up to liability and further debt problems. By providing all creditor information and debt amounts, we can resolve your debt problems in bankruptcy.
