Do I need a lawyer to file Bankruptcy?
Why Do I need a lawyer to file Bankruptcy?
The bankruptcy law significantly changed in 2005, making it more difficult to file for bankruptcy protection. Although you are not legally required to have an attorney file for bankruptcy, consulting with an experienced bankruptcy attorney will help you fully understand your options and avoid potential pitfalls.
There are a number of bankruptcy preparer services that advertise that they can prepare and file your petition for you, however, they are prohibited from giving legal advice and they cannot represent you when a problem develops.
