You will then need to start collecting your documents and information. Once you are ready to proceed we will schedule an in-office appointment for you, generally about an hour to retain us and go over your documents and information.  After this appointment we will send out a personal property appraiser to appraise your household belongs and vehicles.   We also will send you a link to fill out to pull your credit report.  You should also take your Credit Counseling Class at this time.
