How to File for Bankruptcy as an Individual Debtor

Making the decision to file for bankruptcy is a good first step—but filing on your own can actually hurt your case in the long run and make financial matters worse. In this video, we take a closer look at filing for bankruptcy as an individual or consumer.

One of the most important things to do when considering bankruptcy is to consult with a bankruptcy attorney. A qualified attorney will gather your paycheck stubs, tax returns, a list of personal and real assets, income, expenses, and the names and addresses of your creditors so that this can be compiled into a petition.  Learn more about filling the petition and attending the trustee hearing by watching this clip.


You can find out whether bankruptcy is the right decision for your current and future financial circumstances by contacting your Aurora bankruptcy law firm, Cutler & Associates, Ltd., today at (847) 849-1834.
