List of Commonly Forgotten Assets

In your bankruptcy petition, you must list ALL of your assets -- even if the asset is not in your possession, even if you don't want to keep it, even if the value is unknown, contingent, or has little value. If you do not list an item, you could risk losing it

  • Legal Claims

  • Vested Rights in Decedent's Estates (RIGHT TO RECEIVE INHERITANCE OR LIFE INSURANCE PROCEEDS)

  • Timeshares

  • Cemetery Plots

  • Deferred Compensation

  • Employee Stock Purchase Plans

  • Insurance Claims

  • Stock Options

  • Internet Domains

  • Whole Life Insurance

  • Trusts

  • Rights to Tax Refunds

  • Pending Sales Commissions
