If you are in the position of making an appointment with a bankruptcy lawyer, you are ready to make some difficult decisions. Over the next coming weeks and months much of your personal information is going to come to light as a search ensues for all of your assets as well as debts that you owe. In this type of situation you need to find the right person that you can trust as well as someone that is going to work hard to find out what is in your best interest.

Make An Appointment

The first step to this process is making an appointment with a bankruptcy lawyer. You may have heard about one from a friend or co-worker or just searched one out based on credentials. Either way, use this time to present your issue and let them know where you are at financially. It can only be in your best interest to be completely honest so that they can determine the best course of action.

Bills and Paperwork

Bring all of the paperwork that you have to the firm for your bankruptcy lawyer to look over. Credit card statements, mortgage information, the balance on your auto loan and a current statement from the bank for your checking or savings account. While you may not need all of this at the first consultation, it helps if you have it with you for a point of reference in the conversation. Also, be prepared to collect any other documentation necessary for the next meeting. You may receive a checklist to take home to aid you in collecting all other information necessary.

Take Time to Make a Decision

Depending on your specific situation, you may or not hear good news. No matter what, take time to go home and think about all of your options. Your bankruptcy lawyer will understand if this is a little overwhelming and you are having a tough time knowing what to do next. There may be different decisions that you need to weigh out and you don't want to be rushed into making a mistake. If you need to discuss this with a spouse or partner, go ahead and see what the other person has to say as well. When you have decided how you want to proceed, call your bankruptcy lawyer to set up another meeting.

Work Closely with your Attorney

Now that you have decided to proceed, make sure that you are working hard to keep your bankruptcy lawyer up to date with any changes or information he or she may need. Keep to the deadlines and provide any assistance possible. Remember, the firm is working for your best interest and if you don't provide documentation on time or don't return phone calls you are just hindering your own case.

Throughout the experience, talk to you bankruptcy lawyer about any concerns or worries that you are having. While this can be a difficult situation to handle, your representative can give you information to set your mind at ease or explain exactly what is happening so you understand.
