How to Start an Online Bankruptcy Forms Processing ServiceWritten by Victoria Ring

5. At this point attorney may wish to meet with clients to review their bankruptcy petition before filing, but it is not absolutely necessary. Some attorneys I worked for never meet client face-to-face except when they showed up at court. They communicated with client by email or telephone.
Note: Electronically filed documents do not require client’s signature so it is not necessary to meet clients face-to-face before filing bankruptcy petition. An attorney is provided with an electronic signature by court that he uses to sign all electronic documents filed on behalf of client he or she represents.
6. After attorney receives bankruptcy petition by email, he or she will save it on their computer under client file name and begin review. The attorney can either print out bankruptcy petition and make changes with an ink pen, or review it on computer screen and note any changes in an email to forms processor.
7. After attorney has approved or made changes to bankruptcy petition, he or she will email it back to forms processor. The forms processor will make changes and prepare a final bankruptcy petition ready for electronic filing. The forms processor emails final petition to attorney for final approval.
8. Upon approval by attorney, forms processor will electronically file bankruptcy petition with proper court or email to attorney for printing, copying and filing.
As you can begin to see, it would be very easy to start a forms processor service working from home. So if you were like me and are tired of office politics and playing mental games, you now have opportunity to work from a peaceful home environment where you can focus more on each case and give your clients personal touch that will set your business apart from big companies.
