  3. List of debts.
    • Who you owe and how much.
    • Addresses and account #’s will not be needed for the 1st Consultation.
    • You can list who you owe and how much and/or bring a recent credit report.
    • If you do not have a recent credit report, you may obtain one here. (It is not mandatory that you have a credit report for the 1st Consultation)
    • Please bring any lawsuits, garnishments or foreclosure letters.
  4. A list of your monthly living expenses.
