More Bankruptcy Process Details
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the option most people use when filing bankruptcy. It’s simple and inexpensive, and it offers you the chance to discharge most, if not all, of your consumer debt. If filing Chapter 7 is not an option for you, or given your circumstances not in your best interest, my office can help you relieve your consumer debt issues by filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Once we assess your situation, I can give you a better idea as to the best options for your in your situation. If bankruptcy appears to be the best option for you, we can get started right away and will begin drafting your petition as soon as you retain our services.
If you are interested in proceeding as soon as possible, ideally you should bring the following items to your free initial consultation and we can begin working as soon as it is determined that bankruptcy is right for you and you retain our services:
- Your retainer
~ $1,000 for a Chapter 7

We also need state tax returns, so ideally you will want to bring your actual returns. Unfortunately, sometimes tax preparers do not make these documents readily available to you.
- Past 6 Months of Pay Stubs or Other Proof of Income
If you have access to these online, we can pull these at your appointment.
- Any and all bills
Don’t worry too much about how you submit your bills. They could all be in unopened envelopes in a grocery bag or a shoe box. It does not matter how they look when you get them to us. We will organize them and get them entered for you.
- Any documentation related to the following:
~ Retirement Accounts
- Any recent credit reports you may have pulled.
At your appointment, we will pull your credit reports from Annual Credit Report.com. However, if you have pulled these reports recently, we will not be able to access them without paying a fee.
Most of the work in bankruptcy is done before the petition is ever filed and involves answering questions and gathering documents. Husker Bankruptcy makes it easy and convenient for you to get these things done right away to get you to the fresh start that you deserve.
