Information Needed AFTER A Bankruptcy Case Is Filed

Americans may file bankruptcy cases to help obtain a fresh start, which helps debtors start over without the everyday pressure of bill collectors trying to force payment. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy case wipes out debts and obligations while a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case requires some debt to be paid in a monthly repayment plan.

Any bankruptcy case requires a vast amount of paperwork, forms, and other documentation. Thus, it requires the assistance of an experienced bankruptcy attorney. Alberto Montefalcon has the qualifications to assist individuals with problems related to the payment of their debts. After gathering and collecting all of the information related to their finances, what do bankruptcy debtors need to provide after the case is filed?

Past blogs have addressed the information and documentation required by most bankruptcy trustees after a bankruptcy case is filed. Most of the information to complete a debtor’s schedules and statement of financial affairs is also contained in these documents.

Certificate of Personal Financial Management

Before the bankruptcy court may enter a discharge, each individual debtor must take an approved personal financial management course.

Social Security Card and Driver’s License

To attend a meeting of creditors under § 341 of the Bankruptcy Code, (commonly called a “341 meeting”), a debtor must provide both forms of identification to the bankruptcy trustee.
