Preparing for the Bankruptcy Process

  • Obtaining a copy of their current credit report
  • Gathering tax returns and information from the past 5 years
  • Making a list of all secured and unsecured debts
  • Listing all car titles and other relevant properties
  • Including the deeds to any properties owned or partially owned
  • Preparing student loan information
  • Listing all other outstanding debts

Debts can be a challenging obstacle to overcome, but understanding the opportunities available through bankruptcy and fully preparing for this process will help to ensure that you do not encounter any needless delays.
