Preparing To Go To Bankruptcy Court

Our experienced South Carolina attorneys offer advice

If you are filing for bankruptcy in South Carolina, you will likely need to appear in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of South Carolina. Court proceedings are often held in three locations statewide - Charleston, Columbia and Spartanburg.

Knowing what to do before going to bankruptcy court can be overwhelming. That's why we urge you to contact our law firm to learn more about exactly what to do to be prepared for all your bankruptcy court proceedings.

At Matthews & Megna, our South Carolina bankruptcy attorneys thoroughly understand how the legal system works and what needs to be done to prepare a successful legal defense. That's why we want to meet with you and explain all the available legal options, whether you file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

What to do

Information is power. That's why it's important to have as much supporting material as possible for your bankruptcy court proceedings. Documents that can help establish your challenging financial situation include:

  • Unpaid bill notices
  • Layoff notices
  • Regular paychecks
  • Regular monthly bills
  • Additional, unexpected bills (including medical bills)
  • A letter from your doctor (especially if you're unable to work)

The more information you have, the stronger your case will likely be. That's why we want to review all your documents with you before you have to appear in bankruptcy court.
