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 the 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 the comfort of their own home.

2. Client will fax or email their completed forms to the attorney for review. If the attorney decides to accept the bankruptcy case,Guest Posting the forms processor begins drafting the bankruptcy petition from the information provided on the Client Intake Forms.

3. Areas of the Client Intake Forms that are not properly completed by the client or containing statements that require a more detailed answer would easily be solved with a simple phone call to the client to obtain the missing information. No face-to-face appointment would be necessary.

4. After the drafting of the bankruptcy petition, the forms processor saves the document in PDF format and sends it to the attorney as an attachment on an email.

5. At this point the attorney may wish to meet with the clients to review their bankruptcy petition before filing the petition, but it is not absolutely necessary.

Note: Electronically filed documents do not require the client’s handwritten signature so it is not necessary for the attorney to meet the clients face-to-face before filing the bankruptcy petition. An attorney is provided with an electronic signature by the court that he or she uses for electronic filing purposes.

6. After the attorney receives the bankruptcy petition by email from the forms processor, he or she will save it on their computer under the client file name and begin the review. The attorney can either print out the bankruptcy petition and make changes with an ink pen, or review it on the computer screen and note any changes in an email to the forms processor.

7. After the attorney has approved or made changes to the bankruptcy petition, he or she will email it back to the forms processor. The forms processor will make the changes and prepare a final bankruptcy petition ready for electronic filing. The forms processor emails the corrected petition to the attorney for final approval.

8. Upon approval by the attorney, the forms processor will electronically file the bankruptcy petition with the bankruptcy court in the state where the attorney practices law.
