Getting Ready to File Bankruptcy
- Gather documents (bank statements, insurance policies, paycheck stubs, etc.).

- Consider the assets that you have (business ownership, commercial property, tax refunds).
- Locate the needed funds for filing a bankruptcy (attorney, filing & credit counseling fees).
- Locate an Attorney (preferably one Board Certified in Bankruptcy).
- Create a rough list of your liabilities (account numbers, account addresses, credit cards used within the past 90 days, any cash advances made within the past 45 days).
- Be aware that in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy you are not allowed to accrue any debt.
- Educate yourself on bankruptcy procedure.
