I need to go thru a medical bankrupcy it appears. Cannot afford to pay an atty to do this for me. Is there any way I can start the process myself?
nothing yet. but I have lost everything trying to pay my medical bills- ie, savings, home, car, furniture and other sale-able posessions. there is nothing left for me to sell anymore and I cannot even afford the basics such as Rent, paying the phone bill, and so on- so I am receiving notices from collection agencies. changed my cell phone number to stop the harassment from collection agencies, and disconnected my home number when the bank foreclosed on my home.
I never got any info- could you please resend?
I have not received an answer from you yet
what is going on here? do you want me to send this to another atty???
sir, this is bizzare. I am stepping out of this and sending the question to another atty.
Attorney practicing Bankruptcy Law including Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 12, and Chapter 13.
I switched it over to the question and answer session since you do not appear to be seeing the chat come through.Yes if you are going to file a chapter 7 then you should be able to do it on your own. I would recommend that you purchase nolo presses book on chapter 7 at nolo.com it will walk you through the process step by step. Then if you have additional questions you can ask them on this site and get help from a bankruptcy attorney like myself. The book has all of the forms and step by step instructions on how to complete the forms. You can get the forms on line at the bankruptcy courts website but they do not have any instructions, or you can pickup a copy at the bankruptcy court, but again you will get no guidance. Without and attorney you definitely will need a resource like a book to walk you through the process.
I was glad to be of assistance answering your bankruptcy question. As you proceed through the bankruptcy process if you have any additional bankruptcy questions I would be glad to assist you. When asking your questions just request cortrightlaw and the question will be routed to me for a response. Attorney Kevin Cortright
