Alabama Bankruptcy Courts (AL)

How Alabama courts verify assets, titles, liens and financial information

All people who file should know that once a petition and related schedules are filed, the court automatically sets deadlines and begins verifying information. The statement of financial affairs contains a large volume of personal information from past transactions, including financial accounts, deposits, taxes and previous property conveyances. Upon filing, the court, through the assigned trustee, begins a process of verifying assets owned. With plentiful data available via computer networks with other government agencies, supplemented in some cases by data from private corporations, records of ownership, title, transfer and liens are gathered almost instantly.

The Alabama court system does not provide an official Alabama attorney referral program. To maintain impartiality, no Alabama bankruptcy attorney or law firms are recommended by the court, yet the State Bar does provide free referrals to the public. Additionally, most larger cities also provide lawyer referral services through city and county bar associations.
