How to get started with bankruptcy
The first step in the bankruptcy process is to think about what you own and all of your bills. Determine your net take home pay every month and the living expenses that you must pay. Checkett & Pauly will need all of this information to give you advice about bankruptcy as a possible option to your credit problems. To get this process started, please feel free to contact Checkett & Pauly. We are willing to have a five or ten minute initial discussion over the phone to determine if we can assist you. Face to face consultations are by appointment only and completely free. The meeting will be more productive if you finish our bankruptcy questionnaire before the first appointment. If you wish to take advantage of our Fast File Program be sure to tell the receptionist so that you come to the office with all the necessary documents. To get your bankruptcy started, call Wendy Wolf at (417) 358-4049 or just send her an email. We look forward to working with you.

Determine what specific property, if any, you wish to give to specific individuals and decide who should take or share in the remainder.
