We make filing Bankruptcy Quick, Effective & Simple in 4 easy steps!

Step 1 Gather Your Documents

The below link pops up the list of documents you must provide to the Court. Trustees are looking for assets, income and transfers like gifts to family just before filing. You may upload files as part of the intake or we will scan documents. Keep them in order.

Step 2 Fill out an Online Intake

The link below allows you to complete an intake and upload PDF files from home. We also scan documents for you. If we have complete documents you should be able to file your bankruptcy in one trip! Note: when you upload files, please put them in 1,2,3,4 order.

Step 3 Take the Required Classes

Before filing a Chapter 7 or 13 you have to take a counseling class. Your case is immediately dismissed if it is filed without it. After filing you must take a second debtor education class to get the discharge. You can come in and prepare your petition without a counseling certificate but we can’t file until we get it.

Step 4 Call and Make the Appointment

People who read our Manual know how to file a 7 or 13 and get the most benefit. Many clients get their bankruptcy prepared in one trip if they know which chapter they want and come in with documents. Make the appointment now and talk to Nick personally to file your Bankruptcy or Foreclosure Defense.

How to File Bankruptcy Without Losing Your Home
by Nick C. Thompson

For over 30 years, almost everyone who has come into my office recognizes taking care of their family is more important than paying the bank. But, the mistake people make is that they wait too long to file bankruptcy. They don’t understand bankruptcy because they don’t do it every day. Download my book and you will understand bankruptcy. Here are some topics you may expect to learn more about in this book:

1. Plan a bankruptcy early to get the most benefit and keep from losing assets.
2. Avoid lawyers who put you into a Chapter 13 because it pays him higher fees.
3. People often cash in a retirement they could have kept by filing bankruptcy.
4. Never mortgage your home or cash in a retirement to repay debts you can bankrupt.
5. If you transfer property properly, you might be able to keep it.
6. The bank or mortgage company attorneys do not tell you how to sue the bank back.
7. Don’t trust the bank’s lawyers. Do trust the advice of the qualified lawyer you hire.
