A List Of Your Debts
No surprise here. Your bankruptcy attorney needs to know who your creditors are so we can get rid of them! So, the easiest thing to do is gather your last bill from each creditor to take to your attorney. If you have a recent credit report then this will come in handy. If you don't have the actual bills with account numbers that's ok. The name and approximate amount owed will be sufficient. The attorney can take it from there.
