Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
Hello wild bill 1954,
An individual debtor is not required to hire an attorney in order to file a bankruptcy, but a corporation or business must have an attorney to file.
It is highly suggested to have an attorney as the bankruptcy process can be quite complicated, but it is not mandatory to hire one.
The forms are all here. They are not all specifically listed as Chapter 12 because many of the forms are used by all Chapters, you select on the Form which Chapter you are Filing. For instance, open the initial form Voluntary Petition, you will see to check Chapter 12 on it.
There are usually instructions with each form. If you are not sure if the package is complete you can call the Clerk at the Court and discuss it with them.
