A: A bankruptcy attorney can help you understand the process of bankruptcy, the laws, the requirements needed, and can give you legal advice. If you do not hire an attorney to help you, you are esentially your own representative and bankruptcy is a very detailed body of law. Most bankruptcy attorneys offer a free initial consultation. You might want to schedule an appointment and see if they can provide you with more information that what you already know.
I hope this informations is helpful. Take care!
