If you re-filing a Chapter 13 case you will be required to provide the last 60 days of income statements again.  If you are unemployed, self-employed, or receive SSI you can sign an affidavit as to this in our office or online.

The court will require a copy of your last filed tax return. If you are not required to file taxes you can sign an affidavit as to this. If you have misplaced your copy we can request a transcript when you come into our office.

In order for your case to be valid upon filing you must complete a pre-filing credit counseling course.  The course you completed in your last case is good for 180 days so if your case was just dismissed you may be able to use that one.  Otherwise, you will need to redo the course. There are several different companies that provide this service.  The three companies that most of our clients use are:

  1. www.debtoredu.com 
  2. www.abacuscc.org
  3. https://ccadvising.com

When you file for bankruptcy you are required to list ALL creditors and provide their last know mailing address. It is very important that you list everyone in order to receive your discharge. Our firm will pull credit reports and perform a nationwide lien search.
