Please bring the following documents to your consultation:
- Your driver’s license and Social Security card.
- Consecutive wage statements or other evidence of income if you do not receive wage statements (pay stubs) for the last 6 months.
- If you don’t have them, your employer can provide you with copies or a printout showing gross pay and all deductions.
- a copy of your tax returns for the past 4 years.
- all of your bills and dunning letters (please bring the most recent copies only) and a list of all persons or companies you owe them to, even relatives and friends.
- copies of mortgage and car loan statements, even if you want to keep these.
- your utility bills for the last 90 days.
- bank statements for the last 6 months.
The documents you’ll need are the same whether you are filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 matter, with slight variations. However, for exact documentation requirements, be sure to call our office first. Not only do some trustees require more proof than others, but the particular evidence you’ll have to produce will also be determined by the facts of your case. If you have other circumstances affecting your bankruptcy, such as being required to pay alimony, child support, or another unusual expense, you’ll need to show proof of these costs. For instance, it’s common to provide a copy of a child support order. If you’ve divorced recently, you might need to produce an order or marital settlement agreement documenting a property distribution.
