Below is everything you’ll need to make the bankruptcy filing process as smooth as possible.
Steps to Follow After Retainer Has Been Paid
- Pay balance of case (including court costs). You can make payments by U.S. Mail, by stopping in our office, by calling our office for payments over the phone, or through our secure online payment webpage (IE browser no longer compatible). Please remember that if paying by check or money order, the court costs must be paid with a separate check or money order. Also, please remember that attorney fees can be paid via credit card or debit card, but court costs cannot.
- Once your balance has been paid in full, please complete the follow-up packet and fill in the debt sheet.
- Gather together the follow-up packet, debt sheets, and all other requested info and bring into our office for review. (Although no appointment is needed, the wait may be up to 30 minutes.)
