What documents do individuals need for a bankruptcy filing?

When individuals consider filing for bankruptcy, their first step is often to visit a lawyer. Before this meeting, individuals should collect and prepare a number of documents.

These documents include a list of creditors, outstanding loans, any secured debt, and any lawsuits related to these debts. Individuals should also bring bank statements from the last 90 days and a list of monthly expenses, including clothing, housing, and transportation.
