We also pull a credit report from which we import creditors that report credit, but there are almost always creditors that you have that are not on the credit report such as family members, friends, individuals, lawsuits, medical providers, payday loans and buy here pay here sellers. Those must be included in your bankruptcy. A form for that is included below. (click on the name of the form to download it)

Post Discharge Credit Reporting Letter
Here is a sample letter for our clients to send to the credit reporting bureaus, notifying them of the discharge in bankruptcy and requesting specific actions pursuant to their credit record. There is a page of instructions for the use of the letter included. You should check your credit report using any of the free credit report sites out there (we suggest annualcreditreport.com as it is always free with no hidden charges).
Yearly Family Budget
This document is very helpful for families to set up a budget on an annual basis and keep their budget. It is in Microsoft Excel format. I recommend that all of my clients – but especially my Chapter 13 clients, download this form. Save it. Then open it and plan your budget out for the following year. Save the work with a new name, and use it year to year. Staying within a budget is the best way to avoid a bankruptcy in the future. Sharing the budget with your children is also helpful to teach them about budgeting.
