Preparing for Your First Appointment

What You Will Need to Bring With You

At Hensel Law Office, PLLC, we understand that taking steps toward debt relief can be an overwhelming experience. For this reason, we would like to make this process as easy for you as possible. When you take the time to sit down with a Michigan bankruptcy attorney at our firm, you can trust that we will have all of the answers that you are looking for—whether you are asking yourself, "Should I file under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13?" or "What can I do to streamline the bankruptcy process?" That being said, we encourage you to schedule your first appointment today.

For the purpose of efficiency, we also ask that you bring the following items along with you (a printable version of this list is available here - Consultation Checklist):

  • Your completed Pre-Bankruptcy Consultation Form
  • Your driver's license(s) and Social Security card(s)
  • Copies of your last 2 years of state and federal income tax returns

  • Copies of any titles to any motor vehicles that you may own
  • Copies of any divorce decree(s) and/or domestic support orders
  • Your most recent savings/checking account statement(s)
  • Your last 6 months' worth of paystubs (if you're married, you'll also need to bring your spouse's last 6 months' worth of paystubs even if he/she is not planning on filing with you)
  • Documentation of any pending lawsuit you're involved in
  • Notice of Foreclosure (if applicable)
  • Copies of any lease agreement(s) you are a party to (i.e. residential lease, vehicle lease, lot rental, etc.)
  • Copy of Sheriffs Deed (if you've lost a house to foreclosure)
  • Documentation regarding any retirement account (401k, IRA, etc.)

Evening & Weekend Appointments are Also Available

In addition to regular work hours, our legal team is also available to meet with you on the weekend or in the evening. We understand that your life doesn't stop once you have made the decision to file for bankruptcy, so we do our best to accommodate our clients' specific needs. From that point on, you will no longer have to struggle alone – we will be by your side every step of the way. Hensel Law Office, PLLC has already helped countless individuals and families to secure a bright financial future, so we encourage you to let us do the same for you.

Client Testimonials

  • Sincerest thanks for all of your help in affording me what I consider a real "fresh start."

    “I wanted to give you my sincerest thanks for all of your help in affording me what I consider a real "fresh start". My divorce was unfortunate but definitely a needed change for the better. However, the financial side of things still seemed to keep that past linked, which makes this an enormous weight lifted. I just can't believe the impact it's made on my outlook with...everything.I will be sure to keep your business cards handy to distribute along with highly favorable words of recommendation should the needs arise.Thank you again for your time and professional guidance.”

  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”

  • We have and will continue to recommend you to others in need of a fresh start.

    “Dear Tom, my husband and I wanted to express our deepest thanks for the help you gave us during our embarrassing and stressful time. I was very impressed that you returned every phone call in a timely manner. You were able to explain exactly what was going to happen in words that "we" could understand. You answered every question we threw at you. The whole bankruptcy process from start to finish was complete in the time you told us it would take. Your professionalism yet friendliness made the whole experience for us almost enjoyable... almost! We have and will continue to recommend you to others in need of a fresh start.”
