Still, if someone decides that filing a bankruptcy case is in their best interest, the lawyer representing the client has to prepare a bankruptcy petition and schedules that accurately reflect the client’s financial situation.

How a Minnesota Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Support You

So asking people who are feeling this way to collect financial information to help prepare bankruptcy petitions and schedules can be asking a lot. We understand this at Kain & Scott – so a lot of our practice is devoted to providing as much support as possible to assist clients in helping us prepare legal documents that are complete, correct and accurate.

Using Technology to Make Your MN Bankruptcy Easier

We do this by activating 21st Century technology to support our clients’ information gathering. We don’t require out clients to fill out multiple-page questionnaires in order to get the financial information needed to disclose accurate information when filing bankruptcy in Minnesota. Rather, we use technology to generate the baseline of information needed, and ask our clients to conscientiously supplement that information where needed.

When a draft of the petition is prepared, our clients sit down with our assistants and one of the lawyers at Kain & Scott to carefully review the draft and make changes if and where appropriate. Then after a final draft of the petition and schedules is prepared, our clients are sent that draft for a final review.

The client is our active partner in completing, and in some cases correcting information in the petition and schedules, rather than bearing the burden of being the sole source of the information. The result is professional legal documents and clients who feel supported by the law firm representing them and confident in the quality of the documents filed with the court.


It's understandable if you've been hesitant to file bankruptcy because the process seems overwhelming.
