How to Start a Bankruptcy Forms Processing Service
Work at home for bankruptcy attorneys nationwide. Documents are filed electronically online. Attorneys save money and drastically reduce their overhead expenses.
The majority of bankruptcy courts nationwide now require all documents to be filed electronically in PDF format. This has opened up an exciting opportunity for professionals to work from their home and draft Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petitions for attorneys across United States. The average consumer bankruptcy attorney operates on a very tight budget. Providing him or her with your service will not only lower their overhead costs but maintain consistency in their document preparation procedures.
A typical bankruptcy forms processing business might operate like this:
1. Client downloads or is emailed a set of Client Intake Forms in PDF format to print and fill out in comfort of their own home.
2. Client will fax or email their completed forms to attorney for review. If attorney decides to accept bankruptcy case, forms processor begins drafting bankruptcy petition from information provided on Client Intake Forms.
3. Areas of Client Intake Forms that are not properly completed by client or containing statements that require a more detailed answer would easily be solved with a simple phone call to client to obtain missing information. No face-to-face appointment would be necessary.
4. After drafting of bankruptcy petition, forms processor saves document in PDF format and sends it to attorney as an attachment on an email.
5. At this point attorney may wish to meet with clients to review their bankruptcy petition before filing petition, but it is not absolutely necessary.
Note: Electronically filed documents do not require client’s handwritten signature so it is not necessary for attorney to meet clients face-to-face before filing bankruptcy petition. An attorney is provided with an electronic signature by court that he or she uses for electronic filing purposes.
6. After attorney receives bankruptcy petition by email from forms processor, 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.
