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
A bankruptcy can be done without an attorney, but doing it yourself is not worth it,
their are several online bankruptcy petition providers who charge a fees of less than $200 for the petition, and you can file it yourself through those services.
The above are two such providers, also their are several paralegal services as well, in your local area, since your mothers case is fairly basic, it should not be too hard
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask
