In order to prepare for bankruptcy, it is important to gather all of your bills and be prepared to discuss them openly with your attorney. You will also need to gather information on any assets you own - including a home, car, jewelry and personal items.
Once you have those documents together, the next step is to decide under which chapter of bankruptcy you will file.
Once you have your documents and have made a decision about which kind of bankruptcy you will file, you should find a competent bankruptcy attorney who can file your request here in New York City. Your attorney can advise you as to which assets you can expect to keep during a bankruptcy and which ones you should expect the court to order sold in order to pay your debts. Bankruptcy is never easy but with the right attorney, it can be easier.
