What do I need for my bankruptcy consultation?

Filing a bankruptcy case requires a lot of information; however, your bankruptcy attorney will help you by walking you through the process and advising you what information you need to provide to the court.  During your initial bankruptcy consultation, the attorney will need key information such as your current income, household expenses and other information relative to your personal finances to give you the best advice regarding a bankruptcy case.  While many law firms have a customized intake form for information they require, you can get an idea of what information you will need by reading “Attorney Intake Questionnaire: Hiring a Bankruptcy Attorney.”
