My fee is $200 to prepare your Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition and schedules.
We will have a total of 2 appointments to prepare your paperwork.
At our first appointment I will give you worksheets to complete, give you the court approved credit counseling classes that are required (these classes can be taken online or by phone and the cost is nominal). We will sign a contract and you will pay my fee to retain my services.
You will complete the worksheets, take the first credit counseling class, and gather up any paycheck stubs you have received during the six months preceding our appointment.
When you have completed the above you will either drop off your packet of worksheet, class certificate and paystubs to my office or you can mail the documents to me.
I will review your worksheets and other documentation and begin preparing your bankruptcy. I will email you a draft to review and approve. Upon approval by you we will schedule our 2nd appointment.
At our second and last appointment, we will sign the bankruptcy petition and schedules. I will make 2 copies. I will give you the original and 2 copies to file with the court and I will retain 1 copy for my file.
You will go to the court to file your original and one copy of the bankruptcy petition and schedule; file the credit counseling certificate; and file your paycheck stubs (if working) for the preceding 60 days. You will get a stamped conformed copy of the bankruptcy petition and schedules for your records.
