We will not accept jpg files. All files must be PDF, in-focus, clear, and something you would be okay presenting to a federal court.
No scanner? Please DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AT FEDEX. Download the free app, "CamScanner" for your phone. It has a nice batch function and makes PDF files. Or, you can purchase an inexpensive scanner on amazon for less than the cost of sending me one batch of documents.
Files may NOT be password-protected
Your Driver's license must be in color.

YOUR CASE IS NOT FILED AND THERE IS NO CASE NUMBER, until:
You have completed all of the above,
You have fully paid for your legal services,
I have sent you a draft copy of your petition,
You have reviewed it, signed it, initialed every page, scanned it as a clean, clear in-focus PDF file, and emailed it back to me, and
I have emailed you a copy of your FILED petition along with your case number and further instructions.
After we have filed your case, I will ask you to provide additional documents, as requested by the Trustee to whom we're assigned.
You are required to take a second, post-filing, Debtor Education course. Click here
Your Trustee Meeting:
Roughly 30 days after we file your case, you will appear at your 341(a) Meeting of Creditors and Trustee Meeting.
Generally, no creditors appear; this is very rare.
At your meeting, you will be placed under oath, and asked questions by the Trustee who is assigned to your case. When your case is filed, I will email you a list of typical questions asked by the Trustee.
This meeting is non-confrontational, and civil. You will not be yelled at or threatened or shamed.
Also after we file, you are required to take a second course ("Debtor Education"). This is a mandatory course, takes about two hours, and can be done from home. I will email you a link to take the course.
Roughly 80 days after your meeting, the Court will issue your discharge. I will email you a copy, and you will receive a copy by mail a few days later. KEEP THIS DOCUMENT. It is among the most important documents in your case.
A few days after your discharge, your case will close. I will let you know by email once your case closes.
Rebuilding your Credit
Near the end of your case, I will enroll you in the credit rebuilding course from 720creditscore.com. This course is yours at no extra cost ($1,000 value), and will teach you the fastest, most ethical, legitimate, moral, practical, and effective way to increase your credit score to above 720 within 24 months of your discharge.
