Getting Your Financial Documents in Order
If you and your attorney decide that filing bankruptcy pleadings is the best option for you, then you’ll need to take some time to organize your financial information. Basically, depending on the type of bankruptcy case you’ll be filing, you could need any number of documents and records in order to help prepare for the start of your case.
These items could include your bank statements, your recent tax returns, any and all documentation relating to auto loans or your mortgage, any and all credit card statements, any student loan statements and the like. In short, anything that relates to your finances should be included in your initial organizational efforts, as it’s always better to provide your attorney with too much information than not enough, as the mistake of omitting any relevant account, asset or debt could prove to be extremely damaging to your case.
