Considering Filing for Bankruptcy?

Find out the Benefits of Filing

Despite the negative stigma, filing for bankruptcy actually has many potential advantages, depending on your specific situation. As you begin to consider if bankruptcy is right for you, it’s helpful to understand the primary ways it could make your life better.

Bankruptcy can yield many benefits, including:

  • The potential for a debt discharge, permanently relieving you of the obligation to pay
  • An automatic stay against creditors to suspend all debt collection activity
  • Protection from foreclosure, wage garnishment, and creditor harassment
  • A clean slate from which you can begin to rebuild your credit

While not all types of debt qualify for discharge, most do. These include medical bills, credit card debt, deficiency judgments, repossessions, past-due utility bills, payday loans, and landlord-tenant judgments.

Your first consultation is free. Call Law office of Matthew M. Cree at (317) 830-5993 now to get on the path to financial freedom.

It will seem like a lot, but keep in mind that this list can be tailored to your specific situation. For example, if you own a home, then we would need a copy of your recent mortgage statement, mortgage, and deed. If you rent, on the other hand, we would just need a copy of your lease.

Please also keep in mind that this information is crucial in planning your case, and having it handy makes for a much smoother, stress-free case for you! It's been our experience that putting in a little effort at the beginning of your case will pay off dividends down the road!

Your bankruptcy checklist includes:

  • Certificate of Consumer Credit Counseling (the first course you take—must be completed before filing)
  • Completed bankruptcy packet with income and expenses (provided at meeting)
  • Copy of Photo ID and Social Security Card
  • Paystubs/proof of income for the past six months (including spouse's income, even if they are not filing)
  • Bank statements for the past three months
  • Federal and state tax returns with W-2’s / 1099’s for the past two years (or most recently filed returns)
  • Most recent statement for all retirement accounts, whole-life insurance policies, & 529 educational savings accounts
  • Most recent mortgage statement
  • Copies of real estate mortgage and deed
  • Rental/Lease Agreement or Land Installment Contract

  • Name, address, and telephone number of the person receiving child support
