What Do You Need to Bring to Your Appointment?

When You Meet With Our Bankruptcy Attorneys

The sooner you file for bankruptcy, the sooner you can get debt relief. However, before you file, you should meet with an experienced lawyer who will perform a financial analysis to ensure bankruptcy is the right solution for you. By bringing the proper documents with you to your appointment with Resnik Hayes Moradi LLP , we can expedite the process.

Call (213) 344-0043 to schedule a free initial consultation with a bankruptcy attorney at Resnik Hayes Moradi LLP . From our offices in Los Angeles and Sherman Oaks, we serve clients throughout Southern California.

Documents to Prepare and Bring

Prepare and bring the following information with you to your appointment:

  • Pay stubs from the past two months
  • Monthly expense information, excluding unsecured debt
  • Federal and state tax returns for the past two years
  • A free credit report
  • Creditor statements, including names, addresses and account numbers
  • A list of the property you own
  • Credit counseling certificate
  • Photo identification
  • Social Security card

The more information you provide at your initial consultation, the more comprehensive your evaluation will be. It is important that you let your attorney know about all of your debts, even if they involve property you wish to retain.

Determining Which Type of Bankruptcy Is for You

Due to bankruptcy law changes made in October 2005, you have to pass the means test to qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Whether you are eligible for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy is largely dependent on your income earned over the past six months. Our lawyers will determine which type of bankruptcy you qualify for.

To schedule your free initial consultation, contact our firm. We have helped thousands of clients in Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange Counties.
