Quick Checklist for Bankruptcy

Connecticut Law Firm Advises Clients On Bankruptcy Checklist

Bankruptcy can be a lifesaver for people who can’t make ends meet. If you are swimming in unpaid bills and are afraid of losing your assets, property, or home, bankruptcy can allow you to begin again, save your assets and home, and reorganize your finances so that you never have to face losing anything again. The attorneys at Mark M. Kratter, LLC can help you make the transition to a better financial future by assisting you throughout the entire process of bankruptcy. Your job is simply to furnish them with the following information, so that they can determine whether you are eligible, and for what type of bankruptcy:

  • Copies of your most recent federal and state income tax returns.
  • Salary payroll stubs or direct deposit records for the last six months
  • Records of income from things such as rents, royalties, pension, unemployment benefits, Social Security payments, child support, alimony, and sales commissions.
  • Billing statements for items you have bought and on which you are making monthly payments.
  • Proof of insurance for all financed vehicles .
  • List of creditors and balances due.
  • Your last statement for any retirement account, including IRA or 401(k). 
  • A copy of divorce decrees, property settlement agreements or any other court order that has to do with child support, alimony or spousal maintenance within the last five years. 
  • Addresses of everywhere you have lived for the last 36 months.
