Bankruptcy documents must include, but are not limited to:
  • Bank statements
  • Retirement account statements
  • Wills
  • Mortgage/Lease
  • Pay stubs
  • Stock account statements
  • Credit card statements
  • HELOC statements
  • Other loan and debt statements
  • All other sources of income, including businesses owned or partially owned and leases showing any rental income

The financial documents will provide the attorney with the exact numbers needed to file the bankruptcy. The bankruptcy documents are also proof of any monies owed, and the documents may be used in the meeting of creditors (341 meeting). Documents need to be produced prior to filing so that the attorney has the exact numbers for the financial affidavit.
