What do you do when you need to file bankruptcy but don't have any money for an attorney? I am just barely paying (2 wks late at all times) my mortgage and have stopped paying all unsecured debt in order to do that. That leaves me with about $150 for the whole month for food, gas, OTC meds, necessities etc. What does one do in that case?
Also, I have a pending lawsuit against someone who owes me quite a bit of money but has made no effort to pay me back in 1 1/2 years (it was a 3 month loan). This will take years to get back from him. What happens if I file bankruptcy now because I am out of money and then maybe a year later I collect from him?
