Why You Need Our Attorneys to Help You Through the Bankruptcy Filing Process
A Bankruptcy Attorney is not a legal requirement in PA when filing for Bankruptcy. However, our expert Bankruptcy Lawyers can help you immensely by ensuring you’re filing accurate and correct documents and schedules. Accuracy is critical because incorrect information can adversely affect your settlement.
Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Filing Process
You begin the bankruptcy process by
- itemizing your
- income sources;
- monthly living expenses;
- assets; and
- key financial transactions over the past 24 months;
- tax returns for at least the last two years; and
- documents relating to any property you own.
Our Bankruptcy Attorneys can help you determine what documents you need to ensure you don’t leave anything out.
When you have all your financial information and documents, you can start the bankruptcy filing process by
- filing several forms including a petition with the Pennsylvania District Bankruptcy Court.
- The court uses this paperwork (known as the schedules) to determine how to proceed in your case.
- It is crucial that this information is accurate and up-to-date, or it may negatively affect your petition;
- filing your suggested repayment plan for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
- You and your attorney will need to make arrangements to start your payment plan. You usually make payments through direct withdrawals from your bank account;
- The payment plan must account for all of your disposable income for a minimum of three years and must use this income to pay off your debts; and
- lastly, paying filing costs.
