The Bankruptcy Information Sheet

Everyone who files a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case must receive and review what is known as the Bankruptcy Information Sheet.

The Bankruptcy Information Sheet is a two-page document provided by the U.S. Trustee Program (part of the U.S. Department of Justice).  Further, the Chapter 7 Trustee, the official who administers your bankruptcy estate, will ask at the bankruptcy hearing if you have reviewed this document.  I provide clients this document as part of my intake material, during the initial bankruptcy consultation.  I provide this document again to clients right after we file for chapter 7 bankruptcy.

This document simply details what bankruptcy is (both chapter 7 and chapter 13), what reaffirmation agreements are, what debts may or may not be dischargeable, and so on.

The Bankruptcy Information Sheet can be found here: bky-info_english
