Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
You qualify for a chapter 7 bankruptcy if your median income falls below the state median
i get 370 a week unemployment
The cheapest way for you to file a bankruptcy is to use a petition preparer
where do i find?
They charge $150-$300 for the paperwork and you can do this fairly easily.
Online their are several and their are many near your local city
u mean a paralegal?
Yes, paralegal services do this as well
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
In a case like yours you do not need an attorney as you have no assets, and your case is fairly easy
my situation is i quit my federal gov. job in alaska and moved back to washington state about 6 months ago
Do you own any property?
just personal... 98 minivan worth 2500
and 225k in IRA and 50k in 401k
i mean 25k in ira
Your IRA and 401k are protected and they cannot take them
You should not use them for your debts
Also look at craigslist, legal services their are several petition preparers their as well
ok, and i will receive 4.5k in tax money and 3k in backpay from job in alaska
i am under alaska exemption rules
You may want to wait to file till after your payments, as you do not want the trustee to take the income
Good luck, you should wait three months after you receive the refund, so their would be no issue
