Materials to Gather for My First Meeting


Bankruptcy law requires that you provide a complete and accurate listing of all your income, expenses, property, debts, and creditors when you file for bankruptcy. Otherwise, your bankruptcy may be denied. Therefore, gather the following materials:

  • Copies of your most recent bills and credit card statements.
  • Copies of your bank statements for the last six months.
  • Copies of your tax returns for the last four years.
  • Copies of your pay stubs for the last six months.
  • Copies of your most recent statements for any car or house mortgage debts.
  • Copies of any court documents you have for any lawsuits you were involved in during the last twelve months.

Also think about:

  • What are your significant assets?
  • Are any of your debts secured by collateral?
  • Is there any action about to occur to foreclose or repossess property or to shut off utility service?
