What Should I Expect At My Bankruptcy Consultation?

While bankruptcy can be stressful, filing is your first step towards achieving real, lasting, financial freedom. Once you make the decision to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy or Chapter 7 bankruptcy, call King & King in Atlanta, Georgia for a free consultation with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer.

What Should I Bring For My First Meeting?

There are a few things you need to bring to the meeting with your lawyer. Take the time to collect the following:

60 days proof of income

Most recently-filed tax return

Photo identification

Information about your creditors

If you are being sued by a creditor or if you have received letters from creditors, bring these to your initial meeting as well. Together, this information will give your attorney a good idea about your financial situation. Always be honest with your lawyer as any incorrect information may lead to your case being dismissed without getting debts discharged.

Your first meeting is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Your King & King attorney will meet with you at no charge for an initial consultation and review of your case, and then recommend the best course of action. Call us at 404-524-6400 to take the first step towards your fresh start.
