When filing bankruptcy, time is of the essence. Because the sooner you file, the sooner you can recover garnished wages, stop creditors from calling and harassing you, and get the protection of the automatic stay, which can stop eviction, foreclosure, or having utilities shut off.
While you technically do not need to bring anything with you, it helps to bring as much information as possible. The key is to show up and get started on finding out your financial options.
One way you can expedite this process is by being organized and prepared when you are ready to meet with your attorney. At an initial consultation with a bankruptcy attorney, you want to get a feel for the attorney, their experience, and their areas of specialty.
