  • Insurance Policies (auto & life)

Other Things You Will Need To Do

In addition to the foregoing, you will be required to attend a Pre-Bankruptcy Counseling Course and obtain a Certificate of Completion. Your bankruptcy case will not be able to be filed without that certificate.

You can also anticipate that your attorney will ask you to complete a detailed worksheet which will require you to list all of your debts and all of your assets, as well as information regarding your financial history.
