“X” is for Xerox of Your Financial Life in Bankruptcy

“X” is for Xerox of Your Financial Life in Bankruptcy

When you file bankruptcy you have to fill out the bankruptcy petition.  You will go over your bankruptcy petition with me at our Livonia office before we file your case.  In a nutshell, the bankruptcy petition is a complete Xerox (Copy) of your financial picture.

Your bankruptcy petition has to contain all of your assets, all of your liabilities, all of your income and all of your expenses.  Basically, it should be drafted in a way that your bankruptcy Trustee can review the petition and at the end conclude that you really do need the assistance of a bankruptcy.  We don’t hide things from the bankruptcy petition.  We include everything that is required because both you and I have to sign the bankruptcy petition that the information provided in it is truthful and accurate.   

In order for us to make sure your bankruptcy petition is a complete Xerox of your life, we need you to provide us with the information we request and then lastly review the petition we drafted just to make sure we got everything correct.  After that we will make you a Xerox of the petition to take home and keep for your records.  Then we will file the petition with the court to get you your debt relief and a fresh start.
