Steps In Filing A Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is an effective, efficient and respectful form of debt relief. It offers you protection from creditor harassment, stops creditor collection actions and saves assets. When it is complete, you are provided with a fresh financial start and your credit begins to improve.

At Sigmon & Henderson, PLLC, we will thoroughly analyze your unique financial situation and help you make informed decisions about the appropriate bankruptcy filing to lay the best possible foundation for your future.

  • Full analysis of your financial picture
  • Gathering all financial and legal documents to thoroughly evaluate your liabilities and ability to qualify for bankruptcy protection
  • Preparing your bankruptcy petition to meet the requirements of the Bankruptcy Court and the bankruptcy trustee
  • Drafting a repayment plan if filing under Chapter 13
  • Filing your bankruptcy petition
  • Enforcing the automatic stay of bankruptcy
  • Attending a meeting of creditors with you
  • Eliminating unsecured debts
  • Creating an affordable three- to five-year repayment plan if filing under Chapter 13
