What Documents Do I Need to File for Bankruptcy?

Our Maryland Bankruptcy Attorney Keeps It Organized For You

To get started in filing for bankruptcy, these are the documents you will need:


  • Copy of your driver’s license
  • Copy of your last 6 months of paystubs
  • 4 years tax returns (if you do not have these available, tax transcripts will be ordered from the IRS )
  • Bills/statements from creditors that you have received in the last 2 months
  • Bank statements from the last 2 months
  • Certificate of completion from a credit counseling course provider (a financial management course will need to be completed after the petition has been filed)
  • Completed questionnaire (provided by the attorney)

Our Maryland bankruptcy lawyer will help you compile these documents and answer any questions you have about bankruptcy. Please contact our law firm to set up your free bankruptcy analysis.
