There can be if you have not completely disclosed all of your assets and your financial situation. When our attorneys meet with clients initially, the following is the list of questions we typically ask. If you answer yes to any of the below, the lawyer would want to make sure we addressed that specific issue in the paperwork that we submit to the court. Or, your attorney may recommend that you delay filing for a period of time. Here is a sample of questions to ask yourself:Have you paid any funds to a relative within the past year?
Does anyone owe you any money for any reason?
Have you sold or transferred anything in the last six (6) years?
Have you sued anyone in the last five (5) years?
Are you receiving now or do you have the right to receive any payments from an inheritance, lawsuit, divorce judgment or any other award or settlement?

Have you made any large payments to a specific creditor within the past 90 days?
Have you transferred any funds from one credit card to another or taken a cash advance within the past 90 days?
