Filing bankruptcy allows people with debt to protect their assets and income and avoid a garnishment or levy. Bankruptcy filings require expertise and experience as there are a lot of complicated rules that change often.

There is a common misconception that a person must be destitute to qualify for bankruptcy relief these days. But, it is often people with regular income who are making minimum monthly payments on their debts who can benefit most from a bankruptcy filing.

We will provide you with a questionnaire and a list of documents and information we will need for your consult and to file your bankruptcy. Typically, the documents needed fall into the following categories: (1) income (pay statements, income taxes, bank statements, etc.); (2) expenses; (3) assets; and (4) debt (invoices, statements, bills, collection letters, lawsuits, etc.).
