Start Preparing Your Bankruptcy Homestead Deed
If you have filed for bankruptcy without an attorney (pro se) you are advised that most bankruptcy filers need a homestead deed. It is always advisable, but not required, to have an attorney to insure that you do not make a mistake that causes you to lose property or cost you money.
Below are several documents you should have handy to prepare your Bankruptcy Homestead Deed and a general, although not comprehensive, list of things you should consider including in your Bankruptcy Homestead Deed.
Property to consider listing on your homestead Deed:
- Money in your bank accounts on day of your bankruptcy filing;
- Funds garnished from wages or bank accounts;
- Upcoming tax refunds;
- Equity in any real estate you own;
- Amount used in any and all previously filed homestead deed;
- Money owed to you or potential future claims you may have;
- Value in any other property not specifically protected any other Code of Virginia exemption.
