Filing bankruptcy requires filling out official forms to file with the court. When you select our law firm, our attorney will guide you through the legal process. Our bankruptcy attorney wants to make sure you follow the appropriate steps and compile the following information:
- A list of your creditors and how much you owe them
- The source, amount, and frequency of your income, if any
- All of the major property you own, such as your house, car, business real estate, equipment, and accounts receivable
- Monthly living expenses, including food, clothing, shelter, utilities, taxes, transportation, and medicine
