Filing for bankruptcy can be one of the most stressful and complex legal actions you have ever undertaken. Even when there is little property involved, a bankruptcy can be dismissed for incorrect or incomplete submissions to the court. Providing incorrect information could lead to a belief that you are engaging in fraud, and could bring terrible legal repercussions.
Bankruptcy courts operate according to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, which dictate everything from how many copies of a document need to be filed to filing deadlines to how to file motions and discharge debt. Additionally, each bankruptcy district has its own set of local rules. These rules are typically written for legal professionals, and they can be a challenge to follow on your own. The Bankruptcy Code itself is not written for lay persons, and it is essential to understand exactly what bankruptcy can and cannot do for you before you file.
The paperwork involved in a bankruptcy can be overwhelming, and errors can have significant consequences. The debtor must file the basic petition and numerous schedules of assets, credit counseling certification, financial statements, and other forms. Bankruptcy forms can be fairly complex.
