You will need to provide your attorney with your driver’s license and social security card for your emergency petition, and these are also mandatory at your 341 Meeting of Creditors. If you don’t have a driver’s license, your passport or other government-issued form of identification will suffice. You should provide an original W-2 if you don’t have your social security card as it should include your social security number. Your attorney will be using this information not only to draft your petition but likely to also pull your credit report.
Because you still need to state which chapter you are filing under in an emergency petition, you will need to provide income information to show that you qualify. Your attorney will need your paystubs or other proof of income for the previous six months, as well as your spouse’s, if applicable. If you have other income, like rental income or a side gig, you will need to provide six months of these records as well.
Your attorney will likely have some forms or a packet for you to fill out before your petition is filed. Some of this information is basic and necessary for filling out the skeleton petition, like your address and former names. It will also likely outline your financial situation in general, from your property, income, any past repossessions and lawsuits, student loan debts, etc.
