If you have decided to file for bankruptcy, you should set aside 4 – 7 hours for gathering documents and reviewing your petition. If you are incredibly organized, then obtaining the necessary documents will be quick; however, if you are like most of us, the documents need to be found or requested from the appropriate agencies. A debtor will generally need to produce the following documents:
- 6 months of paystubs
- 2 years of tax returns
- 2 months of bank statements
- 2 months of mortgage/rent payments
- 2 months of car payments
- 2 months of utility bills
Note, you will be required to provide screenshots of bank statements showing the balances on the date that the petition is filed. If you are deciding whether bankruptcy is right for you, please call our office for a free consultation 949 591 8755.
