Asked in Bankruptcy for Colorado

Q: What do I need to do to file a Chapter 7 in Colorado?

An attorney in New Mexico advised me that it may be possible to file bankruptcy in Colorado under the Homestead Laws for a lien filed from an inaccurate boundary survey judgment. I have questions and need to hire an attorney.

A: To file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Colorado, you first need to ensure that you qualify by passing the means test, which assesses your income and expenses. Then, you will be required to complete a credit counseling course from an approved provider. Once these steps are taken, you will need to compile all necessary documents, including proof of income, a list of assets and debts, and a list of monthly expenses, to submit with your bankruptcy petition; hiring a Colorado attorney to guide you through the detailed process and represent your interests can be very beneficial.
