Creditors List Form: Click Here

Use the above creditors list to list out all your creditors.   The above creditors list below can be printed out and filled out by hand. If you choose to complete the form digitally, make sure to download it first to your desktop on your home computer. (Do not fill out this document on your phone.) When the form is completed, go to “File” and Save “As” the document somewhere on your computer when you are done. Then, send the Saved “As” creditors list to us.

Every blank on the creditors list must be filled out.  Make sure to include addresses for every creditors.   Use your bills, notices, and memory to fill out the creditor’s list.    Then, you can pull a credit report if you would like an extra check to see if anything was missed.    Alternatively, we can also pull your creditors directly into your Bankruptcy Petition from the credit bureaus for $37 in a single case or $54 in a joint case.    However, we recommend doing the creditors list because the results a many times better.

Upon Completing the Above 3 Steps, We’ll Send Your Bankruptcy Petition 

Once we have your documents and the required fees, we will draft your petition. Your bankruptcy petition will be e-mailed to you for review.  We can also go through the whole process live on ZOOM.  Or, if possible, you can also come to the office to sign it as this can make the process faster.   In order to sign the petition, you must sign the signature pages and MAIL QUICKLY 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 original signatures provided. 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).

Once we receive the signature pages in the mail, we will be able to file your bankruptcy!

Alternatively, you can have an appointment set to sign the documents in our office.  This can be easier in many cases!

After Your Bankruptcy Case Has Been Filed

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 through Zoom. You must attend the Zoom bankruptcy meeting. Make sure that 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 Zoom.  Make sure to download the Zoom App and test it quickly.   You will receive a date, time, Meeting Room number and Passcode.   We will be on the Zoom 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).

We will also need a bank statement update after your case is filed. Please email our office your next bank statement. This is a court requirement!

We look forward to working with you and getting you out of debt!
