Quickstart

from bankruptcy import extract_all results = extract_all(filepath=filepath)

will return a dictionary of the forms (if found) and the contents of the document.

Some Notes

This tool relies heavily on PDFPlumber.

Somethings to keep in mind this parser has been tested only on digital PDFs from recent court filings (ie 2018 and earlier). This parser does not work on scanned bankruptcy documents and was built and tested on documents from the Pacific Northwest.
