Tips on Filing a Bankruptcy Petition in Oklahoma

If you are planning to file for bankruptcy it is imperative that you come into it well prepared to avoid any possible setbacks. As in every other state, Oklahoma has its own set of rules that govern the procedure for filing documents with the clerk and the progress of the case. It is essential to read the local rules of the appropriate court prior to preparing a bankruptcy filing.

Attending the mandatory consumer credit counseling taken from an approved nonprofit credit counseling agency and obtaining a Certificate of Completion is ideally the first thing you should do to get the ball rolling, so to speak. After that then you can then prepare and organize all the other paperwork necessary to file your petition. Among the most important items listed in the Oklahoma Bankruptcy Checklist are your 1040 federal and state income tax returns, copies of titles to vehicles you own, list of your assets, recent bank statements and a comprehensive list of your monthly expenses.

If more documents are required, your Tulsa bankruptcy attorney Greggory T. Colpitts will advise you, but if you have the items listed in the Oklahoma Bankruptcy Checklist with you, then most if not all of your petition can be prepared very quickly.
