Initial Bankruptcy Consultation- Requested Documents

In our initial Bankruptcy consultation, we will need a full picture of relevant finances.  To insure the most efficient and helpful use of time, please bring the following documents with you.

1. Credit reports from the credit bureaus at   www.annualcreditreport.com.

2. Copies of all your bills, collections notices, and court papers, grouped according to creditors.

3. Bank statements from all of your bank accounts for the past 6 months.

4. A copy of the two most recent tax returns you filed. If you can’t find it, you can call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 and ask that they mail you a tax transcript for the most recent return you filed.

5. Copies of your paystubs for the past 6 months. Keep saving your paystubs and give them to your attorney each time you meet. If you do not have paystubs, you will need something that shows your income for those months, such as bank statements.

6. Prior real estate deeds and mortgages.

7. Copies of certificates of title for vehicles.

8. Copy of your driver’s license and social security card.
