Appendix 1A of the local bankruptcy rules has several checklists of what documents to file in a bankruptcy case and when. The checklists are organized by chapter (7, 11, 12, and 13) and the type of filer (individual or business). Any individual filing bankruptcy without an attorney should use the appropriate checklist. Each document on the list should be typed, not handwritten, and contain the date the document is signed and an original signature. Click here and go to Appendix 1A.
