Once you receive an email from attorney Chris Bush at DebtDoc announcing that your bankruptcy case has been filed, you must follow the procedures outlined here to ensure that you prepare and satisfy all the legal requirements for the bankruptcy procedure and ultimate discharge of your qualified debt.

Step One: Provide Financial Records

You must provide bank records within one week that show the account balances for all bank accounts as of the filing date stated in your bankruptcy announcement email from attorney Bush. All transactions for the 30 days prior to that filing date must be included. Please provide these records to attorney Chris Bush within one week. If you are not able to obtain the regular monthly statements produced by your bank, a printout from the bank web site is also acceptable. Do not wait for the regular monthly statements if they will not arrive on time!

Step Two: Meeting of Creditors

Your announcement email from Attorney Bush will include the date of a mandatory meeting known as the “Meeting of Creditors”. The location of this meeting is in room 1234 of the Edward J. Schwartz Federal Office Building. A map and directions can be found at this link. Please allow plenty of time to get there - allow time for traffic, finding parking, and getting through security. We must also meet for a few minutes before the meeting itself to go over a questionnaire and so I can answer any questions you may have.


Make sure you are prepared for this meeting! Read more about this meeting in our post about the Meeting of Creditors.

Step Three: Complete the second course in Personal Financial Management

You are required to complete two courses in personal financial management for your bankruptcy case to proceed. You completed the first before your case was filed. Your second course is due no later than 60 days after your initial meeting. Failure to file the second certificate will result in your case being closed without a discharge.

Make sure you understand what is required of you regarding the second course! Read more about this course in our posting on Personal Financial Management: Course Two.

If you have questions about any of these steps, contact Attorney Chris Bush immediately at 619 295‑3322.

Auto Loan Delinquency Rising

Late Car Payments?

The number of people 90 days late in car payments approaching peak levels since the subprime crisis of 2010.

If you’re late on your car payments, come in for a Chapter 13 consultation!

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
