33 Things Not to Do When You Are About to File Bankruptcy, #1

Your attorney will ask you a lot of questions before you file for bankruptcy.  When your attorney asks you about your finances, don’t leave out bank, checking, savings, brokerage, and credit union accounts.  List them all.  If you are a joint owner with a parent or another family member, list those, too, and tell your attorney about them.  Disclose, disclose, disclose.  Your attorney will know how to protect your assets, but only if they know they exist.  Don’t hide accounts.  The trustee in your case can ask for several past months of bank statements, so don’t tell the attorney there’s only $50 in the account when the statement shows otherwise.
