Here are the forms:
At the top there is a drop-down menu with all the Bankruptcy courts in the nation. The one you have to choose is "Northern District of Ohio".
When finished, you will have around 60 pages to file total. However, many of those pages will be mostly blank.
You have to fill out the following forms:
B3B (if you are going to apply for the waiver)
All the B6's, but not the Cover Sheet
B23 - this one has to be filed after you file the Bankruptcy, after you take the Debt Management class.
Also, there are 2 classes you have to take:
1) Credit Counseling class must be taken before you file the Bankruptcy.
2) Debt Management class must be taken after you file the Bankruptcy.
You also have to take a Credit Counseling class, which you can take online.
If you make under a certain amount, and if you qualify for the Bankruptcy court fee waiver, you will not have to pay for the classes either, but you may have to call to get clearance to take the classes for free.
You can take the classes at www.DebtorWise.org.
Lastly, you will also have to submit tax returns for the last 2 years that it was required for you to file taxes.
And you will have to submit proof of your income. If you are working, you have to submit paystubs for the 8 weeks before filing. If you receive benefits, you have to submit the most recent award letter.
