Question is, do I have to tell my attorney about all of my assets in a bankruptcy? The simple answer is yes. You want to tell your attorney about all of your assets. The bankruptcy laws require that you disclose all of your assets, all of your income, all of your expenses and all of your debt.
Now, in order for your attorney to give you proper and adequate advice, your attorney is going to need to know about all of the assets because it's going to be required that your attorney include all of that information in your bankruptcy paperwork. So err on the side of disclosure and tell your attorney about everything, probably more than he or she wants to hear, and you'll be in good hands.
