What documents do I need to file for bankruptcy?

The bankruptcy laws are very complex and involve extensive documentation to ensure that your bankruptcy petition is approved. The bankruptcy trustee will ask for detailed financial documents because bankruptcy laws require that you must disclose all of your assets, debts, and properties. Any inaccuracies or missing documents can cause your case to be rejected.  

Documents To Bring for Your Bankruptcy Consultation

It is helpful if you bring the following to your free first visit to our office:

  • Copies of your bank statements for the last 6 months
  • Copies of all your paycheck stubs for the last 6 months
  • Copies of all your bills, lawsuits, etc;
  • Copies of your last 4 years tax returns
  • Your divorce decree if you are divorced
  • The settlement statement for any real estate sold or refinanced within the past two years
  • Copies of your home and auto insurance declaration pages

In addition, there may be other documents that we need that are unique to your case. If you do not have all of these documents, though, do not let it stop you from calling our office. We can help you get many documents that you are having trouble locating.
