PLUS EXEMPTION, DISTRICT AND PREPARER DOCUMENTS
- State-specific information pages detailing all Exemptions for each state;
- Forms required by each of the 90+ District Bankruptcy Courts;
- All Preparer's Forms required by the Bankruptcy Court and each District.
Each Schedule listed above works completed independently; the preparer only completes the documents needed for a specific filing. As such, the data from these Schedules is not automatically copied into the Creditor Matrix; creditor information needs to be input directly into the Matrix. Be certain to review your District’s matrix formatting requirements as provided, so that the matrix is not rejected as non-conforming.
A PDF form entitled Bankruptcy Questionnaire Checklist can be provided to clients not only to ask questions about their financial situation, but to help them collect then provide a list of documents and identifications they should present prior to working on the filing.
COMPLETING THE BANKRUPTCY FILES
The design format of all Bankruptcy documents are determined solely by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Since all documents must follow the Court's format, Standard Legal provides all of its Bankruptcy forms as individual PDF files matching the Court's exact format.
Every Standard Legal Bankruptcy form is built so that all required information is supplied quickly by the user directly within each data collection field on each Bankruptcy form. The user moves from one data field to the next simply by hitting the TAB key on the keyboard. There is no need to search through a PDF file to locate an area where information must be provided. Simply click the computer's cursor into the first data field on a form, then hit the TAB key to continue to the next field until all are completed.
Keeping the individual Bankruptcy forms separate in this process makes each file size manageable and allows a user to skip forms not required for a particular filing. In this setup, there is no duplication of data entry, either!
AREN'T COURT BANKRUPTCY FORMS AVAILABLE FOR FREE?
Yes, a set of basic PDFs of all U.S. Bankruptcy Court forms are available online for free.
But PDFs don't all work the same. And the PDF forms from the Court have significant limitations.
Standard Legal's Bankruptcy forms are fully-functioning calculation-enabled PDFs. Each Standard Legal form is writable and savable.
The Bankruptcy Court's PDF forms are NOT calculation-enabled PDFs. The Court's forms are NOT writable or savable.
The Court's forms set the language and format, but they have none of the functionality of the forms from Standard Legal.
The most critical function missing from the free Court forms is 'Save Filled': the ability to fill any of the form fields then save the PDF so that the answers remain within the form.
The ability to 'Save Filled' is critical for two reasons:
1) without 'Save Filled', the user is forced to finish then print a form all in one sitting. That is a difficult task for many of the Bankruptcy forms given the amount of information required.
2) without 'Save Filled', the user must start a form again from scratch if there is an error, change or addition later.
For those two reasons, the 'Save Filled' forms from Standard Legal have great value. But there are other important differences in how the free Court forms work vs. the forms from Standard Legal:
- Standard Legal's forms auto-complete any 'like fields'. The forms the Court provides do not always auto-complete the 'like fields' -- so if "Name" is an entry field three times on one form, you must fill in your name three times in three locations on the Court's version.
- Standard Legal's forms automatically handle the financial calculations directly within the form. The Court-provided forms often do not calculate the financial fields, meaning that the user must 'do the math' separately with a calculator then type in the result manually for each calculation field. That can take some time.
- Standard Legal provides detailed overviews and step-by-step instructions. The Court forms typically do not offer any substantive instructions whatsoever for completing each form, nor do they offer much in the way of Bankruptcy process overview information.
- Standard Legal provides fully-completed sample case forms. The Court websites do not provide any sample case forms for review. Completed samples can be of great help while working on your own forms.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS & SOFTWARE FILE SPECIFICATIONS:
Standard Legal's Professional Edition software works on virtually all Windows, Apple / Mac, and Linux-based systems. Typically, the legal forms software comes in three document formats: PDF, Microsoft Word and Text files. As a general guideline, court or government created forms that must follow a specific look or format are provided as fillable, savable PDFs; long-form contracts and written agreements are provided as customizable Word and Text files, plus PDFs. (Titles that only use Court-drafted forms may come as PDFs exclusively.)
PDF forms require the download and installation of either the free Adobe's Acrobat Reader or the commercial version of Adobe Acrobat. To edit the baseline content of the PDF forms requires Adobe Acrobat.
The Word documents require a full version of Microsoft Word, Open Office, or another word-processing program that recognizes and allows for the use of fillable form fields.
The Text files can be edited with any word processing program, including pre-installed programs like Notepad and Wordpad.
Please be certain that you read and understand the complete details on the Standard Legal Professional Edition Licensing Agreement before making a purchase of this software.
