Anyone done their own bankruptcy?

I had a person from church tell me that they would do my bankruptcy pro bono now they want to charge me 1300. So I am thinking of just filing it myself. Anyone do this?

  • there's fees. filing, court costs, mailing, etc.

    you want it done right..... it's a very complex procedure. it's an important choice and it needs to be done right, you also want to be represented in court so that creditors don't try and take advantage of you. don't do it yourself. hire a pro.

  • I went through a lawyer. It cost about the same amount as what your person from church is trying to charge you.
