Your bankruptcy case is filed.
What happens next?
you’ve assembled all the paper, after
you’ve answered endless lawyer questions, and after
you’ve filed all the bankruptcy schedules in your case with the court, what do you need to do now?
Actually, relatively little happens after you’ve filed your bankruptcy. The heavy lifting is done.
But for a successful outcome to your case, you need to stay engaged. Bankruptcy is not the kind of law you just hand to your lawyer and bow out.
Here’s what you need to do to as a member of your bankruptcy team.
1. Open your mail
Read what the court and I send you. I sent you a copy so you can see what is going on and what I have done on your behalf.
Much of a bankruptcy case plays out in paper generated by my office and the court. Stay up on the latest.
Make arrangements to appear at the first meeting of creditors.
2. Review what you have signed
It takes a lot of paper to file a bankruptcy case and you undoubtedly signed lots of schedules.
Go back and review what you signed. Read the question and your answer. Is your answer true and complete?
