Filing For Bankruptcy

The Process Of Filing For Bankruptcy

When you file for bankruptcy, you’re embarking on a lengthy process with multiple steps and countless details. If it’s Chapter 7, the bankruptcy 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. Individuals filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy will attend further hearings following their creditors’ meeting in the event that their creditors are disputing the debt discharge.
