We start the list with the letter A for assets.
Assets, for bankruptcy purposes, include all tangible and intangible items you own or have an interest in which have some value. So physical things like cars, real estate, furniture, jewelry, etc., just about anything you own and can touch needs to be listed as an asset. Intangible assets are things like bank accounts, retirements, and the rights to receive future payments. These also need to be disclosed in your bankruptcy.
Even things with little to no value need to be listed as assets. For example, if you have a house whose mortgage is worth more than the house, you still need to list the house as an asset even though it can’t generate enough money to pay any creditors besides the mortgage. Another example is term life insurance, which has no value until you die, but is still an asset and needs to be disclosed.
For bankruptcy purposes, it is better to err on the side of disclosing more than less. If an asset is listed and the trustee chooses not to sell it, you can keep it. If it wasn’t disclosed, the trustee can still come back years later and sell it to satisfy your creditors.
