I filed Bankruptcy Por Se as directed by a company called Sign

Resolved Question:

I filed Bankruptcy Por Se as directed by a company called Sign here and I had a meeting of the credtitors today. I was told they could not do my case today because they did not receive my info as needed(bank statement, tax return, proof of income). I worked and got payed cash on my jobs so I have no proof of income, I cleaned houses and sat with the elderly when needed.I can supply bank statements but I have to get the tax return from my husband( he is not filing with me). The Bankruptcy Trustee who is from a Law office told me to get a lawyer. I did this Pro Se because I didn't have money for a lawyer. Now that I need one will a lawyer take my case since I already filed and I also did the required Debtor Education classes?

You can still get a lawyer. Some local attorneys will charge you a smaller fee to file the necessary updates and help you with the case. You don't need a lawyer, even though one was suggested, although it can help. You can show the trustee a letter from employer stating income, or you can fill out an income statement and have it notarized (under oath) saying the income received was true. You need to send in 60 days of pay advices or other proof of income, as well as the last 4 years of the tax returns. Check at the bankruptcy court, they may have a help desk for pro-se filers.
