We were one of the first bankruptcy software
producers to participate in the original San Diego electronic filing
experiment in 1999. At that time, electronic filing was being tested in
the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of California together
with a few other selected states, including Texas. Now, a few years
later, electronic filing has proved successful by lessening the workload
of both the bankruptcy practitioner and the Bankruptcy Court.
When our electronic filing feature was first
introduced, only a few jurisdictions were accepting such filings. Now,
all courts have recognized the benefits of electronic filing, and more
bankruptcy preparers are eager to secure the time, convenience and
financial benefits of electronic filing. Official Bankruptcy
Forms (WBank) makes electronic filing easy.
ability to send your bankruptcy petition, including all forms and
schedules, to your word processor as a single, editable document opens a
lot of doors. Once the forms are in your word processor, you are in
control. You can make the final decision about where answers are placed
and how they are formatted. If something needs to be changed, you don’t
have to think about it. You simply change it. This important new feature
gives you the ability to make modifications that may not be possible in
the context of
itself. With our Send to Word Processor feature, not only can you modify
and format your answers, but once the desired form is in your word
processor, you can even change the form itself! There’s nothing you
can’t change in the familiar comfort of your very own word processor.
When we referred in the preceding paragraph
to “opening doors,” we mean that once the completed petition is in your
word processor, you send the petition as an email, fax it, make a “dumb”
pdf file, or print it. Most current word processors are very powerful in
their file-handling capabilities.
With this new feature, you’ll find it’s much
easier to get your petition to look the way you want. For those users
who prefer to do things the old, tried-and-true way, don’t worry; you
can still print any form or batch of forms directly from WBank
Many users don’t know that Adobe Reader
(that is freely distributed) cannot create PDF files. It can only view
them. Because WBank comes with its own PDF maker, it does
not require additional software. That’s an important fact to know that
because Adobe charges about $350 for the new version of Acrobat - the
program with the ability to create PDF files.
Another issue to consider is making sure
that the PDF capabilities are functional in all 64- and 32-bit versions
WBank has the ability to
create PDF bankruptcy filings automatically in all 32-bit Windows
versions without additional software. WBank guides you
step-by-step through the entire file creation process.
The Main Window is your Map Quest roadmap
for processing a bankruptcy petition. From top to bottom, from
beginning to end, the outline or tree view logically organizes the data
entry process by building on information entered in prior levels. Of
course, you click on the [+] to the left of the Start Here item to
begin. You'll see the first level of sub-items or steps:
1. General Information
2. Voluntary Petition & Exhibits
3. Creditors & Debts
4. Property & Exemptions
5. Statement of Affairs
6. Current Income—Schedule I
7. Current Expenses—Schedule J
Our intention is that you should have a
pretty good feel for using the program simply by looking at the
WBank has all the means test
calculation forms and integrates all the extraneous IRS data required
for computing the median family income, local and national standards for
housing, food, clothing and transportation expenses. Don’t forget that
this information changes every 6 months and those upgrades are free
until the release of a new major version.
Our printed forms always looked great, but
WBank's printed output is unparalleled thanks to new design
and layout techniques for rendering the various forms and schedules.
All chapters use the same basic set of
"Official Bankruptcy Forms" and WBank prepares them all.
Why should the price be any different?
All of the new "official Bankruptcy Forms"
are included from Form 1 through Form 23. WBank also
includes other various commonly used forms. See the product information
page of our web site for a complete list of all the included forms and
