Bankruptcy Attorney - Needed or Not?

Re: Bankruptcy Attorney - Needed or Not?

I filed bankruptcy pro se on 4/4/17 and I had my meeting of the creditors today.  It went very well. I didn't have any assets so it was a simple case.  I recommend purchasing the Nolo how to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy book to help you fillout the forms if you decide to file on your own.  It has a step by step guilde on how to fill out the forms correctly.  Also make sure you pay attention to your deadlines.
