Filing for Bankruptcy

When you file for bankruptcy, you’re embarking on a lengthy process with multiple steps and countless details.

Whether it’s Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, the procedure usually includes:

  • Meeting with a bankruptcy attorney to discuss your financial situation and legal options
  • Provision of financial documents to the attorney to determine the appropriate bankruptcy type
  • Completion of a mandatory credit counseling course prior to bankruptcy filing
  • Review and signing of a bankruptcy petition, which is immediately filed with the bankruptcy court
  • Attendance at a creditors meeting. Those filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will attend further hearings following their creditors meeting in the event that their creditors are disputing the discharge of their debts. Those filing for Chapter 13 will discuss the details of their payment plan at the creditors meeting, and begin making payments shortly after the termination of the meeting.
