Attached are important bankruptcy notices you are required to read before we file your bankruptcy. It is NOT necessary to print any of these documents out or sign them; when you come in for your first appointment we will have hard copies for you to sign.

Bankruptcy Information Sheet:  This is a document that we are required to give you, that explains the difference between the different kinds of bankruptcy.  It is very generic information and can be confusing in that it says that your assets can be sold.  It is extremely rare for assets to be sold in a bankruptcy. If there are any concerns about your assets, we will discuss that at your consultation.


Domestic Support Obligation.  If you pay child or spousal support, or if you pay alimony, you must fill this out.  We will provide to you at your initial consultation to complete. If you receive child or spousal support, or receive alimony, you do NOT have to fill this out.  If you don't pay any support you also do not have to fill this out.

Statement of Information:  This is notice required by the bankruptcy court for you to review.  It is very similar to the Bankruptcy Information Sheet only more confusing.

Notice to Consumer Debtor:  This is another document required by the bankruptcy court for you to review and it is very similar to the Bankruptcy Information Sheet and the Statement of Information.  Why are you required to read all three notices that say almost exactly the same thing?  No one really knows - this is Congress at work.  If you have questions, be sure to let us know.
