Attorney Certifications

The new bankruptcy law places additional duties on bankruptcy attorneys representing debtors in Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases. Our office must certify to the court that we have performed a reasonable investigation into circumstances giving rise to your bankruptcy, that your bankruptcy petition is well-grounded in fact, and the attorney has determined that your bankruptcy does not constitute an abusive filing. Also, we must certify that, after reasonable inquiry, we have no knowledge that the information in your bankruptcy schedules is incorrect. We therefore require you to provide copies of your pay stubs, checking account statements, credit reports and certain other information about your finances and assets as may be later required depending on our investigation.
