st-paul-bankruptcy-lawyer-reviewsThe second appointment that clients schedule with our firm is what we call the “review and sign” appointment. This is most certainly the big kahuna. This two hour meeting with both a legal assistant and with your attorney digs into the nitty-gritty of your situation and the particulars of your bankruptcy petition and schedules. The review and sign appointment is important for quite a few reasons but really for the following four big ones:

  • You review your petition and schedules in-depth. In your review & sign meeting you are given the opportunity to sit down with your attorney and go over what it all means. The legal gibberish, the official jargon, all of it stated simply and thoroughly. The importance of knowing these documents cannot be overstated!
  • You verify all your information. We want to make sure that everything is complete and accurate to the best of your ability. If you and your attorney happen across information that does not quite jive, you have had the opportunity express any concerns and to make the necessary corrections.
  • All of your creditors are listed and your income, expenses and assets are fully disclosed. Again, this is the nitty-gritty stuff. This is a legal court document that you and your attorney are swearing to! It needs to be in tip-top shape so that your filing can go smoothly.
  • You have had the opportunity to ask any questions of your attorney and have had those questions answered! This is your bankruptcy filing and we want to make sure you know exactly what is happening –always.

Your review & sign meeting with your Kain & Scott attorney is dotting your “I’s” and crossing your “t’s.” It is the last step before your case gets filed and one step closer to getting your life back!
