In order to sign the petition, you must sign the signature pages and mail these original signatures back to our office with the United States Postal Service, UPS, or FedEx. You can also drop off the original signature pages at our office. The law requires that the bankruptcy petition has an original signature. Digital signatures or copies on the bankruptcy petition are not allowed. If you request, we can provide a postage-paid large envelope. (NOTE: You do not need to worry about this part now, we will send you more information about this when you sign your petition).

After your bankruptcy petition is filed, you will receive a Bankruptcy Notice in the mail from the court. This will tell you when your bankruptcy meeting will be held. You must attend the bankruptcy meeting. Make sure to bring we already have your Driver’s License, Social Security Card, your 2 most recent paycheck stubs, and your two most recent bank statements for each account.  This meeting will usually be done over the phone.  You will receive a date, time, phone number and passcode.   We will be on the line with you as the Trustee asks you a serious of simple bankruptcy questions. 

When you receive the Bankruptcy Notice in the mail, please make sure to take the second bankruptcy class.  This is the SAME provider and website as the first class, Summit Financial.   This second class is called “Financial Management” (or sometimes the “Debtor Education” Class).

Most cases pay all attorney fees and court costs BEFORE the case is filed. If you are a case that has not paid ALL your attorney fees before your case is filed, you will only have 30 days to pay the rest of your fees. This is vitally important to complete the process as required by the contract. Contact our office within 30 days with the final payment(s). Contact us if you have any questions.
