Most people who are filing for bankruptcy protection are eager to work with their attorney, but they aren’t sure how to go about it. As a result, many individuals believe they only need to deliver their financial records to their lawyer and nothing further. This makes it very difficult on your attorney. Here are a few things you can do to make his/her job easier:
- Be timely. When your bankruptcy lawyer asks you to provide certain documents or records, it is important to deliver them as quickly as possible. Failure to provide necessary paperwork is one of the primary causes of cases stalling. This includes being thorough in filling out the financial questionnaire provided by your lawyer.
- Communicate. If your attorney is trying to contact you, it is important. Return telephone calls or emails and keep the lines of communication open.
- Organize your documentation. While providing your records is the most important thing you can do, it will save your legal team time and effort if the documentation is organized. Saving the law firm time will save you money!
- Be tough. Filing for bankruptcy protection is not fun, but whining about it isn’t helpful to anyone. Approach your case with determination and commitment to make your filing a success. Eliminating all or the majority of your debt is worth it.
