What to Bring to Your Clinic Appointment

All clinic participants MUST complete the following two documents prior to their clinic meeting AND bring them with you!

1. The "Intake Sheet", which is used to gain an understanding of the client’s financial condition and is shredded on-site or returned to the client after the meeting and

2. The “Agreement for Limited Legal Advice, which confirms the limited scope of legal advice provided and contains a conflict waiver.

In addition, please bring any documentation you think is relevant to the questions you are planning to ask the attorney staffing the Clinic office. Your half-hour appointment will be best utilized if you have the information readily available.

If you have not yet filed for bankruptcy, please attempt to compile the following before your appointment to share with the Clinic attorney:  

Copies of any documents you want reviewed or explained by an attorney (e.g., court documents, creditor collection letters, bills, etc.)

  • Your most recent pay stubs or other income statements for ALL income you receive (e.g., full or part-time job, child support income, retirement income, child care income, etc.)
  • Your most recent W-2 or Tax Return

  • Your most recent bank statements
  • Documentation of the value of your real property (e.g., house, land) - examples include past appraisals, tax assessor value, an estimate from, etc.

If you have not yet filed but you have drafted your filing forms, you may bring them with you to your appointment for the Clinic attorney to review.

If you have already filed for bankruptcy, please bring your case number and copies of any documents you wish to ask questions about.
