INSTRUCTIONS: The purpose of the Bankruptcy Questionnaire is to address all issues pertinent to seeking bankruptcy protection. It is important to be as complete as possible but for purposes of the initial consultation, you should not stress over having absolutely exact information. Simply do your best from the top of your head and from readily available information. Your attorney will go over this information with you and discuss what items will need more detail or elaboration. Your answers will help enable your attorney to provide an informed opinion as to your financial situation and determine if bankruptcy is an appropriate solution and if so, what chapter of bankruptcy relief would be appropriate. If you are in doubt or have any questions with regard to a question on the Questionnaire, leave it blank your attorney will explain it and cover it with you. Should you have any questions in completing the Questionnaire, do not hesitate to contact the office.
Federal law requires full and honest disclosure of all assets, debts and answers to various inquiries of the bankruptcy schedules, Statement of Financial Affairs and the Statement of Current Monthly Income and Means Test. Failure to provide truthful answers and disclosures may result in civil or criminal prosecution. These forms are for INTERNAL USE ONLY of Lewis Legal Services, P.C. and all sensitive information provided is protected by the attorney-client relationship and will be used for the sole purpose of assessing your financial situation and preparation of the bankruptcy petition and supporting schedules.
