The following forms will hopefully enable you to begin the bankruptcy process more quickly. These forms will also serve to answer many potential questions. However, these forms do not substitute for an initial consultation. We highly recommend that you call our office to schedule an initial consultation either in person or by telephone. There is no substitute for an in person face to face meeting. However, if you are unable to travel to either of my offices, we can schedule a telephonic consultation.
Online Intake Form
The link named "Online Intake Form" is an online intake that is emailed directly to our office. This form is the safest and fastest way to submit your intake to our office so we can evaluate your current situation and possibly setup an initial consultation. After you fill out the online intake form, one of our staff members will get in contact with you. The online intake form is private and confidential.
In order to open a file in our office, the Client Engagement Letter must be mailed to our office with a check payable to Arvizu Law for $300.00. Once the initial retainer is paid, we will allow you up to three months to pay the remainder of the balance. However, the quicker you pay in full, the quicker the bankruptcy gets filed with the bankruptcy court. When we receive your check, we will open a file in our office. Please call for further instructions.
The Client Questionaire is essential to filing a bankruptcy. When we file a case for you, the end product results in about 50 pages of documents that are filed with the bankruptcy court. The Client Questionnaire helps us to accumulate the information for processing. In addition to the Client Questionaire, we also require two years of tax returns (or a statement that returns have not been filed), the last six months of check stubs, and a credit counseling certificate before we can file your case with the bankruptcy court. There may be other information that we require depending on your circumstances.
Below is a document library with all of the forms that are from the initial consulatation. Some of the forms specify whether they are for a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy so read carefully. You can print these documents out for your own convenience. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding these documents.
