List All Assets: Tell Your Attorney Everything

The importance of telling your bankruptcy attorney EVERYTHING that you have cannot be overstated.  If you have a doubt about whether your prized collection of Furby dolls is worth something, tell your attorney.  That Egyptian relic that is possibly real or fake, tell the attorney.  Even if you don’t think that rust bucket that’s been in your garage for 30 years is worth anything, tell your attorney anyway.  One of the jobs of a trustee is to add any assets to the bankruptcy estate during your case.  If the trustee later finds out that there is potentially valuable property that should have been in your bankruptcy case, the case can be reopened (even after the discharge of debts has been granted).
