What Should I Bring to My Bankruptcy Appointment?

How to Prepare for Your Meeting

Have you scheduled an appointment to meet with a Kane County bankruptcy lawyer? Are you wondering what you should bring to your first consultation? At Hipple Law P.C., we want the legal process of filing for bankruptcy, fighting foreclosure, and / or addressing a wage garnishment to be as easy as possible.

Feel free to contact us today to learn more about what you can expect at your first appointment.

We feel that it is important to offer our clients the opportunity to meet with us free of charge for an initial consultation. With more than three decades of experience working in the legal field, we understand just how stressful financial constraints can be. We don't want your first meeting with our office to be another stressor in your life. Therefore, we offer all new and potential clients of Hipple Law P.C. with a free, no-obligation consultation.

If you have access to any of the following documents, we encourage you to bring them with you on your first visit to the office:

  • Financial documents such as earning statements, bank account statements, tax returns, and receipts
  • Loan documents, especially if a loan is outstanding; these can include car loan and / or home mortgage statements
  • Litigation documents for pending legal action against you

We Use Electronic Petition Preparation

In order to keep the filing process as efficient and accurate as possible, we use electronic petition preparation. This means that our clients will not be asked to complete any lengthy, handwritten forms. Instead, everything is prepared online. To help our clients stay organized, we send e-mail copies of all pertinent documents that are filed through the case.

Our Philosophy for Filing

When it comes to helping our clients, at Hipple Law P.C., our first priority is to attend to any matter that might be urgent. For example, if your wages have been garnished or you are facing repossession or foreclosure, we will want to address the matter immediately. After any urgent matters have been discussed, we can devise a general strategy for moving forward with your bankruptcy. When you meet with us at the office, please don't hold back any information that could be used to help us help you.
