Completing the Bankruptcy Forms

When you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must complete a large packet of forms. These "official bankruptcy forms" consist of:

  • the bankruptcy petition -- which provides information about you and your case
  • a series of schedules -- which gives the court a picture of your financial situation, and
  • various other forms.

You file many of the same forms for both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, with a few exceptions.

Below we provide information about each of the official forms: where to find it, what type of information it requires, and general instructions on how to complete it. Remember, these documents form the crux of your bankruptcy case, so be sure to consult with an attorney, a comprehensive self-help book, or both, before you complete them.
