STEP TWO - PREPARING TO FILE
In order to prepare your Bankruptcy petition there are several documents that I will need. These documents include, but are not limited to:
- A copy of your Driver’s License
- Copies of social security card
- Last two years of your filed Federal and State tax returns
- Copies of your last 7 months of paycheck stubs
- Copies of your profit & loss statements for businesses
- Copies of all sources of income
- Most recent bank statements
- Most recent copies of mortgage and vehicle loan statement(s)
- Most recent credit card statements and/or credit report
- Copies of support orders or marital settlement agreements
- Most recent statements for retirement accounts, pension, life insurance, annuities or stocks or bonds
You will also have to complete a Pre-Filing Credit Counseling as required by the court. There are several different qualified agencies that provide this service on-line or by telephone. Once you complete the course they will provide you with a credit counseling certificate. I must have this certificate in order to filing your Bankruptcy petition.
Once all of the fees are paid in full and I have all of the documents I require to prepare your petition, then we can prepare your Bankruptcy petition and move on to step three, the filing of your Bankruptcy petition.
