You have to file the Petition, Notice of Chapters of Bankruptcy, Statement of Affairs, Statement of Kntention, Schedules A-J, summary of Assets, Declaration of Schedules, statementof SSN, Statement of CMI/ Means test, Verdi of creditormatrix, creditor matrix, plus any specific local forms required by your specific jurisdiction.
