When individuals consider filing for bankruptcy, their first step is often to visit a lawyer. Before this meeting, individuals should collect and prepare a number of documents.
These documents include a list of creditors, outstanding loans, any secured debt, and any lawsuits related to these debts. Individuals should also bring bank statements from the last 90 days and a list of monthly expenses, including clothing, housing, and transportation.
If you or anyone you know is considering filing for bankruptcy, contact the Birmingham personal bankruptcy attorney Paula Greenway at (205) 324-4000.
